Thanks for the link...

The statement did not say how many of the 106,185 have confirmed their choice with an insurance company, or paid their first premiums.

The statement also did not describe the average monthly premiums of the selected plans.

Also, 975,407 people have gotten though the first few stages of the complex, crippled federal and state websites, but have not yet picked a plan.

It's almost 400,000 and considering every Medicaid cost $1400 per month Obama just added $7 billion a year to our debt.

HHS carefully using term “individuals who have selected marketplace plan” instead of “enrollments”

When the Washington Post comes out and says that everything conservatives SAID would happen regarding Obamacide has come to pass, I’ll listen to them. In the meantime, they’re just white noise to me.

Im betting the majority of those 100,000 people are those who signed up for medicaid..here in California they are practically begging you to sign up for Medical which is the same as Medicaid, Govt controlled health care

This is an unmitigated disaster on all levels.

You bet it is! And it's the best news I've seen in a while.

I remember a couple weeks ago watching Ezekiel Emanuel on Greta. He was quite smug and tried to show that he wasn't concerned about the lack of people signing up. He was saying they need 7 million to sign on but the October numbers didn't mean a thing. Yeah right. I wonder what good ole Zeke thinks of the numbers today. Ha!

with the massive deductible there is no reason to sign up at all

I have heard 6 to 12K deductibles- that’s crazy. I have not spent 6K per year for health care in decades

An additional
396,261 have been deemed eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s
Health Insurance Program, she said.

Sebelius refuses to say how many people who selected plans actually paid.

I’ve “selected” my next car, does that count?

I would think that a decision to purchase a new car is more discretionary for most people than a decision to purchase health insurance. Also more fickle and likely to be abandoned.

I am sure it is much lower. These figures include people who put a plan in their shopping basket, but proceeded no further. The actual number of real enrollees who got thru to the insurance companies hasn't been divulged to my knowledge.

Even the Washington Post is saying these are dismal numbers.

They are the great defenders of all things liberal so this must have been a painful moment for the Washington Post.

LOL! That pic is a good representation of Obamacare and liberal initiatives in general.

I wonder how many birds the wind turbine killed before it caught fire?

I’ve selected a Audi R8, Corvette, Silverado and Camaro 2SS, never said I would buy (or could afford) them.

Put it this way, if the numbers were any good HHS would be parading them all over the place. Silence speaks loudly.

OOOH, but how long will that last?

A long, long time I'm guessing. The Affordable Healthcare Act is exploding like nothing since the Hindenberg.

Where does the $1400 figure come from?

In my state each Medicaid enrollee costs just under $5,000/yr. This is the "premium" that the state (partially with federal money) pays each of two companies who provide the insurance.

But the damage has been done. Most folks who have employeer provided HC have had it decimated or seen thier portion of premiums go up.

It’s $1400 per month or over $16,000 per year.

BTW, ‘Hope and Change’ B. ‘Hitler’ Obama will achieve the break-even goal of 7 million lucky policy holders in just over 261 years.

Yup, Obama can then finally say “I BUILT THAT !”

0 has a better chance of breaking par or getting a hole in one than getting all people on zero care in 261 years.

That's the average expense per covered individual, which may include capitation. I was quoting the premium, which is different.

ho-lee crab!!! $20K per year for health insurance? If you banked that every year you would be way ahead of the game, and be able to invest it to make millions, and then afford your own doctors

If I had an extra 20K per year I could turn it into a million easily (did it before)
