WASHINGTON (MCT) About 3 million people have now enrolled in health insurance plans sold through marketplaces created by President Barack Obama's health care law, the administration announced Friday.
The milestone indicates nearly a million additional people have signed up since the end of December. It also suggests that the marketplaces are continuing to recover from a disastrous launch on Oct. 1.

The demonrats are in full tilt lying and the low info believe them.
And those that have actually gotten an Insurance Card from an Insurer that has their name on it and can give it to a doctor who will accept it?
Enroll does not equal covered. Neither is the fact this government tells us the same kind of BS they give us weekly on jobs creation, unemployment numbers, or what they are or aren’t doing with respect to spying on us.
Quite frankly, you cannot believe anything anyone or anybody connected with this government tells you. No Anyone.
I wonder how many of the 1 million who signed up just did it to prop up “The Dear Leader” and don’t plan on ever purchasing insurance.
See? It’s popular. Nevermind that gun to their back.
I’m an easygoing guy, but when I see those constant “I’m Covered” commercials on tv, I become enraged.
Then I found this wonderful parody
Less power to them.
Aetna could be forced out of Obamacare: CEO
He said that so far, Obamacare has just shifted people who were insured in the individual market to the public exchanges where they could get a better deal on a subsidy for coverage. “We see only 11 percent of the population is actually people that were firmly uninsured that are now insured. So [it] didn't really eat into the uninsured population.”
But have these people PAID for the premiums yet? Has the insurance received the correct information and are they actually able to see a doctor who will take it?!
So in other words...big freaking deal they “enrolled” whatever that means in Obama & MSM speak.
How many of them were already covered by Medicaid? Unless they know that number, this is propaganda. This is like bragging about gross sales, and not even knowing if you are netting anything at all.
It would be funny, if it were just a parody.
Wait until all those people who’ve been put on Medicaid find out the government will attach their assets when they die to get back what it spent all those times paying for their colds, aches and pains they thought they were getting for free.
Does anyone really believe these numbers???
Excellent analogy. Chances of MSM reporting that =.01%
I believe them. I also believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy.
Another day, another lie.
My guess would be most of those folks are dirt poor (no assets to take) or street savvy enough to have them beyond the reach of the feds.
There are those out there with assets (not now counted in qualifying for Medicaid under Obama) who will certainly be distressed at what will happen.
3 million out of “47 million uninsured” (the Dims’ reason for Obamacare )
How many of the 3 million already had insurance but lost it due to Obamacare?
Last report on MD I saw said 97% of signups were medicaid.
“Sure we lose money on every new signup, but we make up for it in volume”
I don’t believe the numbers. not for an instant. Even it they are correct, the participation in the program is coerced, regardless.
I’ll continue to vote for liberty seeking candidates. I have very little hope for change, however. I do plenty of talking to young people (and old’uns like myself, here in Southern California)and this is the reason for having such low expectations.
It’s a huge state, and it holds significant weight in each federal election. Between New York and California voting for the nanny state, our side has a tough row-to-hoe.
the country has changed. liberty is on life support.
Assuming a currenct “cost” of $1trillion to ‘fix’ health care (so far) that’s only $330,000 dollars per person!
And now they want us to let them ‘fix’ immigration next.
Don't forget there's also no inflation. My State Farm homeowners insurance just went up 12% ($110). Fortunately that's probably not figured in the inflation stats. Don't count it, then it doesn't exist, right?
Remember the USSR? Bread was cheap. There just wasn't any to buy.
the country has changed. liberty is on life support.
Well, he did promise us Change.
the same administration that said it was a video that caused Benghazi?
the same administration that said we recovered economically.... 4 recovery summers ago?
the same administration that said it if you like your health plan you can keep it?
Well, then you don't have to believe my wife and I who have both received cards and used them (same providers as before).
The first set of cards we received was incorrect, though (wrong insurance company), so we had to wait two weeks for a correct set.
Are these some of those same “million” imaginary people that were Obama and Moochs Twitter followers?
Haven’t we already proven that it depends on what their meaning of enrollment is?
Of course this is nothing but propaganda. The media does have the responsibility of propping up the zero for the SOTU BS — which I won’t waste my time watching.
And how many of these people are on this exchange because they lost their previous insurance and have no where else to turn? How many people who have insurance through the marketplace were previously uninsured? One study recently released indicated as few as 11%. That’s a disaster, and this report acts as though this is good news.
That is what I have been wondering - How many enrollees where people push out of their old plans? Apparently 89% of them.
Comradecare is still 4 million shy to keep it a float.
6 million LOST their plans EVERYONE REMEMBER, 6 million and
counting have LOST their plans!!!!
Do the math. 6.3 million people lost their health insurance in the individual market vs. 3 million new signups.
Indeed it’s all due to Obama&CO they got what they voted for TWICE.
Wasn’t there a thread yesterday about “Covered California” which mentioned that it was difficult to find a doctor who would accept it?
Ok a person starts at 150# goes on a binge and gains 150# and now weighs 300#. If they go on a diet and loose 100# should we compliment them? Have they done something great? They are still +50# from the starting point.
From ObamaCare? You are two of how many? The numbers just don’t add up. Especially when the govt admits the back end billing wasn’t complete.
I get to call Obamacare soon to find out about my application
My insurance agent (an old timer) put in the paperwork in December
He tells me half of his customers got a notice and half have not.
Im one of the lucky ones who gets to call to a real live person and ask them what happened with my application.
Yep its all fixed.
Ours was through the WA State exchange which really didn’t have any problems handling initial payments. What will be interesting is how the subsequent payments will be handled. I believe (could be wrong) most of these will be through Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions via Federal Reserve and ultimately, IRS. This will largely be out of the state’s control. In some cases people are making payments directly to their insurance companies through ordinary channels and these won’t be affected.
Incidentally, my wife and I were expecting all kinds of invasive, probing Obamacare type questions on our initial appointments. I had even coached my wife on what to answer to some of them. But there were no extra questions or anything out of the ordinary. Really surprised me. Possibly this is because we were able to stay with the same providers.
Sounds your state exchange wasn’t developed by Michelle’s college girl friend from Princeton. Federal exchange doesn’t even have the billing part done.
And how many lost their insurance?
Enjoy your chains.
