Businessman: Obamacare Rejected Me Because I Moved

By    |   Monday, 22 Sep 2014 05:30 PM

A Florida businessman who relocated from New York with his family says the Affordable Care Act has temporarily barred him from buying health insurance in his new home state because he hasn't proved he lives in Florida.

Matt Ganzak, in a visit to the "MidPoint" studio in Florida, told host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV on Monday that he is still carrying New York-based insurance — but that if he or a covered family member has a medical emergency, he will have to pay higher, out-of-network costs.

Ganzak, who runs a consulting business, said he has been trying to sort out the mess but cannot get his phone calls returned.

He cannot buy Florida-based insurance through Obamacare until at least Nov. 15 and, in the meantime, the government has rejected his tax forms as proof of his new residence, he said.

Ganzak said he learned that under the health law, the only acceptable proofs are utility bills, a mortgage, or a lease.

Newsmax Deputy Health Editor Nick Tate, who joined Berliner on "MidPoint," said  Ganzak's example is not isolated: possibly hundreds of thousands of people are having difficulty getting coverage because they've either changed addresses or fallen into other cracks of the 2,500-page ACA, the healthcare law also known as Obamacare.

"There still is no remedy at hand," Tate said.
