ObamaCare Officials Too Busy To Return Calls

Recently we posted an article entitled “How Minimum Value Mandate Will Affect Cost Plus Health Plans.” http://blog.riskmanagers.us/?p=10334 The accuracy of the article depended upon verification from the Office of the Division Counsel/Associate Chief Counsel (Tax Exempt & Government Entities) at the Internal Revenue Service, 1111 Constitution Avenue, Washington, DC.

As directed in IRS Notice 2012-31 we called them at 202-927-9639. An answering machine verified we reached the right office, but since there was a backlog of calls to return, the machine voice said that our call would be returned in the order it was received. We have been waiting for a return call since.

Is this any indication of what is in store for us when ObamaCare kicks in at full strength in 11 months?
