Obamacare Enrollment So Complicated There’s Now A Ph.D. Course

Back in 2010 President Barack Obama’s White House created a video to show the American public just how easy it was supposed to be to enroll in Obamacare. The reality following the rollout of Obamacare’s online insurance exchanges this month has been a little different than the breezy process the President had during his video. In fact, the process is so complicated that the University of Texas at Austin is set to offer a graduate course next spring on signing up for government-run healthcare.

The spring 2014 course roster for the university’s Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs  includes a class directed at aspiring Ph.D. students named “Enrolling in Health Insurance Through the Affordable Care Act: An Austin Case Study.”

The course, according to The Daily Caller, is a second-year graduate student class which will examine the Obamacare enrollment process  and the experiences of people in Austin who have attempted to enroll.

The Daily Caller article notes: “[B]ecause of course, the enrollment process meant for the average American can only be understood by someone with five or more years of higher level education under their belt.”

In the month since the Federal healthcare enrollment process began, the government run healthcare website has been plagued with technical problems and enrollees have reported shock over the price of the new “affordable” healthcare plans as well as proof that the Obama Administration stretched the truth when it claimed that Americans could retain their current healthcare coverage if they were happy with it.
