Okay. First official Obamacare numbers are in. Lets go over numbers.
Health and Human Services released the numbers from October 1 to November 2, 2013 both state run exchanges and federally ran exchanges plus included Medicaid/Chip enrollees.
Even though total ACA enrollee numbers don't look great. The total number of individuals appplying for coverage looks very promising.
Below the squiggle are the charts:
First off are the state run ACA exchanges with:
516,248 applicants. 79,391 ACA enrollees, Medicaid 212,865
Then the states ran by federal government with:
Applicants=993,635, ACA enrollees=26,794, Medicaid=183,396:
Notice the high number of applicants and the total number of individuals (around 1,500,000) applied for. Remember each application may contain multiple family members so you have to watch the numbers the media throw out there.
How did your state do?
Remember these numbers only go through November 2, 2013. almost two weeks ago.
The substantial number of completed applications show the MSM narrative that the ACA website was not working, just wasn't true, except for the first week. How else can there be over 1,500,000 complete applications on a broken website? The website fixes started the first week, and as many of us on DailyKos saw, people started enrolling quickly.
Also, important is the huge number of already approved Medicaid Expansion/Chip enrollees. Very promising.
