Shane Smith received a letter from Colorado’s health insurance exchange program informing him that his 14-year-old Yorkshire terrier was enrolled on the state’s Obamacare exchange.

According to the blog Opposing  Views:

“There was some kind of code of something, so I gave them my dog’s name,” Smith said. “They must have just put it in the wrong slot or something.”

Considering the problems other people have been dealing with when attempting to enroll, Smith doesn’t think this was too bad.

“It was pretty funny. Typical Obamacare, that they would insure your dog by mistake,” Smith said.
