MAP: Here's Where People Signed Up For Obamacare
Business Insider ^ | May 3 2014 | Brett LoGiurato, Andy Kiersz

Posted on 05/03/2014 10:43:21 AM PDT by PoloSec

The White House on Thursday released final data from the first enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act, which also included a look at each state's relative success or failure in the law's first enrollment period.

Nationally, just more than 8 million people enrolled in health insurance plans through federal and state exchanges established by the law. But the story was different in all 50 states and the District of Columbia — some wildly exceeded expectations, and others brutally disappointed.

This chart shows which states did well in signing up people through their exchanges, and which did poorly:

Until the actual numbers are released anything we hear and read are pure bovine excrement.

It appeared to be a “deal” for very low income individuals and families. If you see a state that otherwise would be opposed on the upper end of the scale, look at the number of working poor and you’ll find your answer. It was “free” to them, and in many instances included Medicaid signups.

I checked it out and sure enough they told me that I was eligible for medicaid. I really didn’t need the government to tell me what I already knew.

I didn’t sign up.

Bet they didn’t tell you they’d take your house from your estate to pay for Medicaid after you die.

LOL I already knew that too which was just one of the reasons I didn’t sign up.

The chart line for Vermont looks enormous—until you check the numbers, and see that it’s 6%. Wow, that’s huge!

Probably quite the cottage industry looming, setting up family trusts for assets of otherwise poor elderly so they can’t be seized from heirs.

I think I would sign my house over to my sister if I were to sign up for medicaid.

I’ve got an aunt and a cousin who bought an inexpensive house to live in together after falling on somewhat hard times, they’re both on Medicaid. I’ve tried to talk to them about it but they don’t want to hear it. I have no idea what will happen to my cousin when my aunt passes away, probably forced to sell to settle the lien? I have no idea. A trust would protect their interest but would cost money that they do not have.

Then they'll take it from her instead.

Me either.
In my case, like many Americans I don’t like being told what to do: to see words like (you are) “mandated” being used by gooberment stooges, applied to me.

Also, `information released by the White House’—as we have come to understand over the last six years—is always subject to verification.
And it’s too soon so we haven’t seen any verifiable figures on how many of the subsidized and taxpayers are actually paying.
I suspect the subsidized won’t pay unless it is taken out of their government checks, and those of us who give Uncle Sugar a check each April, well, Unk may have to have his IRS hire a team of proctologists to pull the penalty out of our ***es.

Seeing Florida that high IS NOT a good sign for Obamacare supporters. I suspect most of those people are retirees who are not quite 65 years old - something they really didn’t to happen.

So what are the percentages of the uninsured by state?

I believe a spouse is protected but I don’t know about a child. My suggestion would be to have them get married. Their sex is no longer a concern and so what if it’s a little incestuos, who are we to decide who can and can’t marry?

Not really. Since we do not have ANY data on who has actually paid a premium; and who had their insurance cancelled and were forced onto ACA insurance; and we do not know how many went onto medicaid

These data are meaningless and probably extrapolations of some one’s wet dream. Other than that Dude!!! it was like two years ago.

I'd like to see the breakout of county enrollment in Florida...

Our three largest counties are minority based liberal infested hell holes: Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach...

I know the Obama administration made huge enrollment efforts in all three counties...by pushing medicaid enrollment...

The city of Miami is now one of the poorest cities in the country...

They managed to scrape together enough cash to acquire this little place and make it livable. Their current combined incomes are sufficient for a reasonably pleasant existence, no extras, no vacations, one old car between them but they make it work. It wouldn’t work with a house payment or rent. My aunt is retired, my cousin has ended up working at Walmart, that’s the only job she could find and keep. Everything else kept coming out from under her and so there they are, holding it together but barely.

In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.

Next we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.

To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured for free.

There, I hope that this clarifies this issue once & for all.

*********************************************************
6% from a total state population of slightly more than 626,000 people works out to what? 37,500 people? Wow, that’s impressive (sarc).

Bingo.

Subtract the prisoners that were signed up, and the number drops a bit.

IIRC, there’s a time restriction on transferring property to another before filing for medicaid, or filing for bankruptcy protection, etc.

Here in CA a 25 year old guy paid $69 but in essence gets no service.
A $60 co-pay for a doctor’s visit after he pays the first $6000 of his yearly deductible.
So all it appears to be is a tax. How much of these payments are monies being left in some government budget?
Follow the money, that is what I say.

Well, I think the co-pays for most doctor visits actually do apply from the outset. My previous employer dumped everybody into the exchange, so I’m at least somewhat familiar.

It’s a raw deal, especially for young people, but we do ourselves no favors in opposition by overstating the negatives.

OK...94% of Vermonters DIDN’T sign up...I thought it would be 100% who would have signed up.
