|The Drill at Cook County Jail: Get photographed,|
fingerprinted and enrolled in Obamacare
They are signing up inmates at Cook County jail as part of the intake process.
Reliable sources have told us and Sheriff Tom Dart's spokesperson has confirmed, that since early summer, Cook County jail arrestees have been told by guards to line up to see the Obamacare "navigators" as part of the normal jail intake process.
So the drill at 26th and California has basically become 1)get fingerprinted and photographed 2)get tested for communicable diseases and 3)sign up for Obamacare with either of the 2 helpful and friendly female $13 an hour "navigators" who have been given desk space in the jail intake area.
One gets the sense that these enrollees may not have an overwhelming percentage of that high-earning, young, healthy demographic that is requisite to subsidizing the system for others.
One guesses that more than a few Medicaid enrollments have resulted.
