The Obama administration released a fresh round of Obamacare data for all 50 states Thursday, yet offered no payment data to combat Republican claims that only two-thirds of customers in the federal marketplace have paid their first premium.
The Health and Human Services Department reported that more than 8 million people selected a private health plan on the overhauls insurance exchanges from Oct. 1 to March 31, a tally that includes people who got extra time to finish up their selections in early April.

I just read this quote regarding treating senior cancer patients under obamacare: “the affordable care act would no longer pay for cancer treatment for those 76 and older? Can someone verify?
I would like to know how many newly insured people haven’t paid, how many people who lost their insurance are still uninsured, and how many are paying more for less. How many people have experienced deductible shock, when they thought they were covered? How many people who have been insured through Obamacare would have been insured by now without it? How many part time workers in the Obamaconomy don’t have any insurance at all? Is it everything the insurance companies thought it would be?
As I have said before: It is not the first payment that is the difficult one to get. As any Insurance agent can tell you it is the 3rd, 5th, 6th, 12th etc... that is the tough payment. Anyone can pay ONE payment. It is the retention rate that I will be interested in seeing.
They don’t have the figures, but everyone else’s are wrong.
The WH is (re) calculating them even as we speak (see photo at link).
And especially after they find out that they cannot find a doctor who will take their plan and the nearest hospital that will take their plan is far away and their usual pharmacy won’t take their plan .... people will start to ask themselves “why am I paying this premium every month?”
Not to mention when they realize they are still paying out of pocket until they reach their deductible (per person) before some plans will pay 60%. Ouch. That’s a lot of money on top of a monthly premium.
More like 8 million people hit the landing page; after that, not so much.
can they prove they obtained the figures released? Nope!!!
