A Fort Collins, Colo. man signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act and learned that his dog got covered instead.
Baxter received a letter from the Colorado insurance exchange informing him he was covered. Baxter is a dog owned by Shane Smith, according to Fox 31 Denver.
“I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome,’” Smith said with a laugh. “They have gone out of their way to insure my 14-year-old Yorkie.”
When Obamacare rolled out, Smith’s individual health insurance policy was cancelled, so he had to sign up for a new plan under the exchange.
He said the foul-up probably occurred when the representative asked him a series of security questions
“There was some kind of code or something, so I gave them my dog’s name. They must have just put it in the wrong slot or something,” Smith said. “It was pretty funny. Typical Obamacare, that they would insure your dog by mistake.”
Smith called the Colorado exchange and was able to get things ironed out pretty quickly.
“They fixed it,” Smith said. Then after a pause, he corrected himself. “I think they fixed it.”
I wonder. Does Obamacare cover fleas, worms and distemper?
