Over 6 Million Now Enrolled In Private Insurance Through Obamacare.


Recommended Posts

Even with 4.5 million getting private insurance and another 4-5 million (low estimate) getting Medicaid, that's a pretty serious dent in the uninsured rate after only six months.

Real numbers! At this rate it would take almost another 3 years get the privately insured and medicaid recipients insured assuming things as they are hold up at it's current rate. This is also considering the affordability and quality of care proves to be sufficient enough for enrollment to continue on this pace. One thing is for sure, in that much time we will know if this thing can really be sustainable to our economy.

It won't matter how many people sign up if they can't afford the ridiculous deductibles or out of pocket costs that their policy doesn't cover. What you really need to find out is how many signed up for Silver or above caused I'm here to tell you that the previously "uninsured" aren't going to make good on the majority of the Bronze and catastrophic plans they signed up for, even if they're paying $0 on the premiums courtesy to a subsidy. 4.5 million supposedly "covered" Big whoop. Are they getting the benefits they need when it comes time to settle the bill with the accounts thanks to the fraud of "affordability" that came in a bottle of snake oil from a silver tongued grifter? Doubtful.

This admin doesn't know how to create jobs but they **** sure know how to put an EBT into your hand to go spend at WalMart and Target. Can't earn money? No problem we'll just print some and give it to you at the expense of our balance sheet so you can keep consuming corn dogs while the major Wall St. indexes continue rising.

How do you factor in the millions who lost their existing insurance? Do you conveniently forget or disregard them?

Already been explained multiple times. They didn't "lose" their insurance. The vast majority of those plans were cancelled and immediately replaced with plans compliant with the ACA. Only a small minority had to go to the exchanges to get new policies.

Okay, I'll put this one to bed once again, since he ran away like scalded dog...

From the Fact Checker:

http://www.washingto...nder-obamacare/

In reality, many people who received notices that their plans were canceled were told they would be automatically enrolled into another plan by the same insurance company. (Here’s an example of such a letter, courtesy of our colleagues at PolitiFact.)

In other words, the person’s health plan was “canceled” but the person was not left “without coverage,” as the Daily Caller asserted. There likely was a seamless transition from one plan to the other, though the premiums might have increased because the ACA requires all plans to have the same basic level of benefits.

So here's a link to the pdf of the letter informing the person that they would AUTOMATICALLY enrolled in a new policy that was compliant with the ACA:

https://www.document...lue-letter.html

From the letter:

"To help ensure that you have continuous health care coverage you'll be enrolled in this health plan effective January 1, 2014, unless we hear from you by November 1, 2013."

Most of those people whose policies were "cancelled" ended up immediately getting new policies. It's stupid to count them as having "lost" coverage. The Fact Check link above gives a full explanation for why the Republican claim that more people lost coverage than gained it through the exchange is false.

But keep repeating those partisan talking points.

Were these automatic enrollments counted as part of the 6 million signed up for Obamacare?

If they are automatically renewed, why would they go to the health care exchange? blink.png You don't need a link to realize that people who didn't go to the health care exchange were not counted in the number of people who purchased policies through the health care exchange.

This argument would make sense if this administration hadn't already been caught multiple times doctoring numbers (fake districts, counting shopping carts )
