Lynn and John Phillips, also known as Mandi's parents, have college degrees and displayed a lot of patience and tenacity to get the issue resolved. However, they relate that it can be easy for people who maybe aren't as educated to throw their hands up and give up on the process. Lynn and John go through the 5-month process that involved hours on hold on the phone, a trip to the local processing facility, and hundreds of website visits. The experience highlights how the process of enrolling could be improved with workflow automation.
