Rand Paul unsure of family’s O-Care coverage status

[Ed. – You’re not alone.]

ABC News

Democrats have pointed to Kentucky’s state health exchange as an Obamacare success story, but Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said on “This Week” that the system is “a mess,” describing how his son was incorrectly enrolled in Medicaid, and saying he’s unsure if his own family is currently covered.

“The other day I actually tried to get my son signed up through the Kentucky exchange, you know that the Democrats have said is so good. And I have here my son’s Medicaid card,” Paul told George Stephanopoulos Sunday, waving the card. “We didn’t try to get him Medicaid, I’m trying to pay for his insurance. But they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid.”

“I’m trying to pay for insurance and can’t pay for it, and I’m uncertain now whether I’m enrolled in D.C. and/or Kentucky,” Paul added. “And, it’s a mess.
