The White House announced Monday that President Barack Obama enrolled in a health care plan made available by his signature healthcare law on the DC marketplace, even though the website could not verify his identity.
After pointing out that Obama gets his health insurance through the military, the statement said the act of signing up for insurance coverage was “symbolic,” a show of support for the marketplaces.
Obama did not sign up himself, aides signed him up in person because of the “complicated nature” of handling personal information about the President, a White House official told CNN. The official said only Obama was enrolled, not the rest of the first family.
According to Fox News’ Ed Henry, the White House said Obama was signed up for a bronze plan, paying about four hundred dollars a month in premiums. He added that the system could not verify Obama’s identity:
“But, then they came back to us and said, ‘Wait, he didn’t actually enroll.’ They said his staff did it and that’s because of his unique circumstance as Commander in Chief.”
That his personal information is not in particular government data bases. So Healthcare.gov could not actually verify his identity, oddly enough… So his staff did it.”
