Complain all you want about ObamaCare and the comedy of errors that is the healthcare website, at least some people are being pointed in the direction of delicious cupcakes. Brooklyn Cupcake on Union Ave. has been mistakenly listed as a place where people can come get assistance signing up for healthcare. The NY Post spoke to owner Carmen Rodriguez:
Because of the mistake, her bakery has gotten 150 calls from people seeking medical-insurance information.
“There has to be somebody who can help with ObamaCare; that’s their own mess,” she said.
New Yorkers shopping for medical coverage under ObamaCare are being directed by the state’s health-exchange Web site to 288 locations where so-called navigators can offer personal assistance.
They are reaching places such as Rodriguez’s shop because the erroneous listings contain the businesses’ accurate addresses, phone numbers and even languages spoken.
The cupcake maker is at her wit’s end.
“I don’t want to be listed, because they are calling my telephone off the hook,” she said.
