Yet another demonstration of the kind of “private sector velocity and effectiveness” we’ve come to expect: White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House is “very mindful of making sure that consumers who want coverage starting in January are able to get it.” But there’s no guarantee. In fact, Carney said the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is “reaching out directly to consumers” who have chosen a health insurance plan, reminding them to pay their first premium — and asking them to make sure they are really covered: “So there’s a joint effort to reach out to those who have enrolled to make sure that every step is being — that they know they need to take all the necessary steps to ensure that that coverage kicks in,” Carney said on Monday.
