    The Post and Courier ^ | April 18, 2014 | By Lauren Saussar
    Although the deadline to sign up for an Obamacare insurance plan has officially past, the number of South Carolinians who are enrolled keeps climbing. The S.C. Department of Insurance reported Friday that 114,789 individuals selected a plan on the federal exchange through April 15 - up from an estimate of 97,000 earlier this month. The deadline to sign up for insurance was technically March 31, but the federal government granted an extension through mid-April to applicants who encountered any difficulty enrolling. The newly enrolled must pay their first premium by May 1 to become insured. To date, only 67,846 of...
  • Obamacare Only Enrolled 1.4 Million Previously Uninsured Individuals

    Obamacare has reportedly enrolled 7.1 million individuals since its exchanges opened in October. However, according to a recently released RAND report, just 1.4 million of those individuals were previously uninsured.Avik Roy of Forbes reports: Last week, I wrote about an article in the Los Angeles Times, on a then-as-yet unpublished report from the RAND Corporation. The report indicated that only one-third of Obamacare’s purported 7.1 million exchange sign-ups were from the previously uninsured. But Noam Levey, the author of the Times article, didn’t disclose RAND’s actual findings as to the actual number of previously uninsured exchange enrollees. Well, now we know why. RAND published the full...

    Connecticut officials say the state's health insurance marketplace is on track to sign up about 200,000 people in health plans by the enrollment deadline, double the original goal of 100,000 individuals. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy visited Access Health CT office in Hartford on Monday. He urged people without coverage to spend the final hours before the midnight deadline enrolling online, calling the hotline or getting in line at one of the two storefronts operated by the marketplace, Access Health CT, in New Britain and New Haven. Malloy said if people submit basic personal information by midnight, their applications can be...

    More than 6 million people have now signed up for private insurance plans under President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law known as Obamacare, reflecting a surge in enrollments days before the March 31 deadline, the White House said on Thursday. The milestone gives the White House some ammunition to use against Republican critics, who have described the program as a flop in the build-up to midterm congressional campaigns in November, when Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is at stake. Only 10 days ago, the administration had pegged enrollment at more than 5 million people, and enlisted celebrities and top...

    VideoThe Obama administration is engaged in a “final coordinated push” to enroll blacks in ObamaCare, White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Friday. Jarrett said blacks have a “disproportionately low rate of coverage,” and called enrolling them the administration’s “top priority.” “We still have a long way to go and we want to make sure we take advantage of every opportunity for outreach,” she said in a Friday conference call with reporters and three mayors that preside over large black communities: Kevin Johnson of Sacramento, Calif., Michael Nutter of Philadelphia and A.C.

    More than 1.1 million people enrolled in ObamaCare before a December 24 deadline for consumers seeking healthcare plans that begin Jan. 1, the Obama administration said early Sunday. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said in a blog post that more than 975,000 people enrolled in a qualified health plan through the federal marketplace in December, following a rocky rollout in October. Detailed demographics were not released. Tavenner called the late surge “welcome.” “Our HealthCare.gov enrollment nearly doubled in the days before the January 1 coverage deadline compared to the first few weeks of the month,”...

    WHAT percent of American men are gay? This question is notoriously difficult to answer. Historical estimates range from about 2 percent to 10 percent. But somewhere in the exabytes of data that human beings create every day are answers to even the most challenging questions. Using surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites, I recently studied evidence on the number of gay men. The data used in this analysis is available in highly aggregated form only and can be downloaded from publicly accessible sites. While none of these data sources are ideal, they combine to tell a consistent story....

    It is quite amazing as to what state and federal officials tout as Obamacare "success" stories. For example, in the state of Washington, of the 57,730 who have signed up, a whopping 51,368 were for "free" Medicaid services. Given that Medicaid is jointly funded by the state and federal government, this is bound to put a hole in the state budget. Nonetheless, state officials are pleased with the result as noted by the Peninsula Daily News. Nearly 1,400 early birds on the North Olympic Peninsula signed up for health insurance on Washington's health care exchange in October, according to data...

    Today’s Obamacare numbers have been disappointing, to say the least, with only about 106,000 people signing up through the state and federal health care exchanged. On CNN’s The Lead Wednesday, Jake Tapper admitted it was really hard to find Democrats willing to come on and defend the health care law’s dismal sign-up numbers. CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger said the numbers are “embarrassing for the administration,” considering the benchmark the CBO set for how many would need to enroll by March for the program to be successful. Newt Gingrich dismissed the idea this is in any way comparable to...

    Breitbart ^ | 13 Nov 2013 | John Nolte
    Though the number is estimated to eventually hit as high as 10 to 15 million, right now the number of insurance policies canceled due to ObamaCare is 5 million. Wednesday, the Obama administration claimed that 106,185 Americans enrolled in ObamaCare. Except, according to the White House, those are not actual enrollments. Some have not paid for but have only only "selected a marketplace plan." Orwellian nonsense aside, that is still somewhere around a 50-to-1 ratio of cancellations to enrollees. The question now is, will that gap ever close? Because if it doesn't, at the end of the year, when those...

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will release a report on the numbers at 3:30 p.m., and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will discuss the findings on a press call then. The White House has been trying to lower already low expectations for the numbers, as press secretary Jay Carney did, yet again, at his daily briefing Wednesday.

    Some numbers have come been released over the number of people who have signed up for ObamaCare through the federal website and it isn't pretty. It appears that less than 50,000 people have signed up, which is only ten percent of what big government liberals wanted and need. If millions of young people don't sign up for health insurance they don't need, then the entire ponzi scheme falls apart. However, the Obama administration's tenuous relationship with the truth continues as the 50,000 number cited isn't actually correct. It appears that the government is counting every person who had an insurance...

The Associated Press in late October: A month after Oregon’s problem-plagued online health insurance marketplace has failed to enroll a single person, concerns are mounting that some of the most vulnerable Oregonians may face a break in coverage if they don’t enroll within the next month and a half. Oregonians were told state officials were making “significant progress.” It’s now mid-November. Back over to you, Associated Press: With a reputation as a pacesetter in health care, Oregon laid out bold plans for complying with the federal overhaul. The state wouldn’t just create a...

    CBS and the Wall Street Journal report that roughly 50,000 have signed up using the federal exchange which covers enrollment in 36 states. That's in addition to the 49,100 which Reuters reports have signed up in 12 states with their own individual exchange websites. The official numbers for the federal site will be released sometime this week by the Department of Health and Human Services. If the new estimates are accurate, the numbers reported by CBS, the WSJ and Reuters demonstrate that the administration is far behind expected enrollment numbers.

    WASHINGTON -- Four years after making history by becoming the first African-American president, Barack Obama will kick off his second term on Monday with a scaled-back inauguration that reflects the tempered expectations for his next four years in office. Lingering high unemployment, bitter political battles and a divisive re-election campaign have punctured the mood of optimism and hope that infused Obama's 2009 inauguration after a sweeping election win. This time, Obama's inauguration will feature smaller crowds and a reduced slate of inaugural balls and parties to match the more subdued tenor of the times. When Obama raises his right hand...
