    Morning Break: Blue States Red Hot in ACA Sign-Ups

    An analysis of recently released Obamacare enrollment numbers suggest health coverage under the 2010 health law is expanding faster in states with Democratic leadership. The trend has some public health analysts asking if health disparities will widen in states where Republicans are in charge.

    and to ACAsignups. So that can go on the In the News page.

    This is quite pleasant to see, also, even though rather exaggerated:

    Obamacare's December Surge Gets It to 26% of Goal

    Obamacare still has a long way to go to reach its goal. It's not impossible, not if it keeps up the same pace it set over the last couple weeks. But there's no guarantee that will happen.

    Also, none of this tells us anything about the percentage of young people who enrolled.

    Checking in on the First Obamacare Million
    By James Wimberley

    On November 28 I welcomed the first million enrollees under ACA, whether to marketplace policies or Medicaid/SCHIP. The post was based on the fragmentary data available at the time, brought together in Charles “brainwrap” Gaba’s invaluable running spreadsheet, with some extra tweaks and guesswork by me.

    A New Year, The Same Obamacare Worries

    December 30, 2013

    As the Obama administration announced Monday morning, more than 975,000 people signed up this month for health insurance under Obamacare, pushing the total number of people who have enrolled in a “qualified health plan” through the 36 federally-facilitated marketplaces since their October 1 launch to more than 1.1 million. In addition, calculations conducted by Brainwrap’s Charles Gaba, show that the most recently available numbers published by state-based exchanges put enrollments made through the marketplaces created by those states and the District of Columbia totaled around 2 million. Plus, nearly 4 million people will be newly covered thanks to the law’s expansion of Medicaid.

    A Lot of People Signed Up for Obamacare at the Last Minute
    Charles Gaba (a.k.a "Brainwrap," who's been recording and mapping sign-ups for the past 3 months) estimates that since Obamacare's debut, about 5.8 million people have signed up for private insurance or qualified for Medicaid. (Obviously more people are insured through Medicaid — about 4 million.) But the ACA still has a long way to go: In 2012, 47 million non-elderly Americans were uninsured.

    1.1 Million Americans Signed Up For Obamacare; Majority Enrolled In Days Leading Up To Deadline

    Health-insurance sign-ups on U.S. exchange top 1.1 million in initial enrollment period

    By Juliet Eilperin and Sarah Kliff, Published: December 29

    Roughly 850,000 people have enrolled through the state-run exchanges, according to Charles Gaba, a Web designer tracking enrollment numbers.

    Obamacare in Full Effect
    Talking Points Memo, Dec. 31, 2013:

    Where Does Obamacare Stand?

    As noted, more than 1.1 million people have signed up via the federal exchange site. But that doesn't include people who've enrolled through the 14 state exchange sites which have generally done a better job (especially in October and November) signing people up. One person collecting this data is Charles Gaba. He's maintaining an incredibly helpful data set compiling the enrollments released in dribs and drabs from these 14 states. That number currently stands at just under 1 million enrollees. That puts the total number of enrollees at probably a bit under 2.1 million.

    According to Gaba (and this is consistent with other estimates I've seen) just over 4 million people have gained coverage via Medicaid expansion (which is obviously skewed greatly by the geography of which states did and didn't opt in). That brings the new people with care to just over 6 million. Gaba also notes this June 2012 piece in Money, which notes that 3.1 million young adults had gained coverage under the part of Obamacare which requires children be allowed to stay on their parents plans until their 26th birthday.

    Political: Obamacare has failed? Sure, whatever you say.........
    For those that have difficulty with graphs and tables and/or have no use for actual facts please feel free to post the usual nonsense.

    OK, now I'm down to blog posts and shoutouts from brainwrap's Web hosting customers telling their own health care stories, so I'll leave it there.
