Hung up on idiocy: HHS launches Obamacare customer service hotline

Nervous about Obamacare? Just let your fingers do the walking!

This morning, HHS announced the launch of a 24-7 customer service call center that will field calls from concerned citizens and “provide educational information and, beginning Oct. 1, 2013, will assist consumers with application completion and plan selection.” Don’t you feel better already?

And nobody does customer service like government bureaucracy!

We’ve had Obamacare’s number from the very beginning.

Exactly. Hang it up, Obama administration.

  • Mister A

    Wow, it actually does spell out 1-800-F1UCKYO. Oh ya, and have you ever tried calling the IRS? “Horrible customer service.”

    • Aitch748

      No surprise. This administration has been pretty good at finding creative ways to say “F1UCKYO” to the rest of us for nearly five years now.

  • CR

    We need to organize a national day in which every conservative calls this line repeatedly and asks if we can have our trillion dollars back!

    • Marvin Nelson

      Great idea! I’m in!!

    • Squirrel!

      Outstanding idea!

  • Billie Slash

    They have a separate number for children who need organ transplants:

    Yeah it’s press 1 for the gold plan you can’t afford, press 2 for the silver plan that barely pays for any thing and press 3 for the lead plan that plays taps while your waiting for a customer rep.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Hey HHS, call this: 1-800-UBITEME. “Customer service?” I thought that only applied when you actually had customers, not hostages.

  • Danny Wheeler

    And the Obama administration has 1-800-PISS-OFF!

  • Kate

    Any guesses/predictions on what the hold music will be?

      Last Post?

  • mickeyco

    Can you imagine working that phone line? Lord, I’d shoot myself first.

  • NCRelite

    What is your party affiliation? Press 1 for Democrat, 2 for Republican, 3 for Independent, and 4 for Wackobird

  • Dragomance

    Wow,being one of those “customer service” representatives is gonna be the worst job ever.All the people who don’t know what’s in Obamacare yet blindly support it?I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.

    This is the funniest 727-3987 ever!

    (ok, I’ll give you a hint: the first letter is an “s”)

  • Bathing Suit Area

    How dare this government try to assist people with information about their healthcare options!

    • Zach Smith

      We’re from the government. We’re here to help you. Really.

      I had fine healthcare options before Obamacare. Just got a letter from my insurance company. Due to the new health law my insurance policy has been canceled. Thanks for all the assistance, government! I hope to repay you one day.

    • Noah

      I call phucking everything up a funny way of “assisting”.
