Skip to comments.HHS report shows Obamacare in deep hole on enrollments after two months
Posted on 12/11/2013 7:58:47 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Just 364,682 Americans picked a health insurance plan through President Obamas health care program between the Oct. 1 launch of the insurance exchanges and Nov. 30, the Department of Health and Human Services announced today.
Though the pace of signups accelerated during November, as only 106,185 Americans had picked plans as of Nov. 2, the combined signups were still less than half the administration's target of 800,000 enrollments by the end of November.
Adding a caveat, HHS noted that it is trying to correct a problem that may have resulted in some of the signups being counted twice, thus potentially overstating the number.
The duplication issue applied to numbers coming from some of the 14 state-based exchanges, which were responsible for 227,478, or 62 percent, of the signups. The remaining signups came through the federal exchange, which serves 36 states through the troubled healthcare.gov website. HHS said federal data had been scrubbed of duplicates.
As it has done previously, HHS defined people as enrolled if they went through the process of filling out an application and selecting a plan, but officials still have not released data on how many individuals actually paid their first months premiums, which is the traditional way that insurers define enrollment.
Individuals have until Dec. 23 to pick plans and until Dec. 31 to pay premiums for policies that go into effect on Jan. 1. By that time the administration had originally projected 3.3 million Americans would enroll in insurance through the exchanges, according to an internal HHS document unearthed by the Associated Press.

how many have PAID!!!!???
Obamacare is making everyone equal, equally uninsured, and equally unable to afford insurance. We can all go stand in emergency room lines. Only Obama could have done this, but not without a little help from his Democrat friends in Congress.
Due to Republican Sabotage(tm) #officialnarrative
5 million have lost their healthcare plans due to Obamacare. How many of the 365,000 were uninsured prior to Obamacare? What are the ages of the 365,000 who picked plans?
Can you max out 401K and HSA contributions to get below the Obamacare income limits for subsidies or the income requirement to have insurance?
Rome was not built in a day, and Obamacare will not be spun in a day.
Paid? I thought is was all FREE!
HHS actually gave a report!
Actually, that’s a DESIRABLE outcome if you’re a leftist.
“All of us in the same boat”, to them, is utopia.
They seem to make special exception for the “elite”,
even when they don’t consider themselves part of them.
They just don’t want some “non-elite” to be better off than they are.
The social engineers of the left think of themselves as the philosopher kings, the elite of the elite. They are the people who must live above the rest of us, in order to control us.
No, they also have to pay. The next month will be interesting.
