I've added in one more section to The Graph. The OFF-Exchange QHP section is now broken into three areas: Documented (ie, specific hard numbers from scattered companies), Low-End Estimate (which adds up to the CBO's 5M figure) and High-End Estimate (which addes another 3M for the RAND figure).That comes to 7.30 million paid.
In addition, I've gone back and retro-fitted a few of the earlier numbers to correct for the fact that the Medicaid/CHIP data tends to come in a full month or more after the actual time period when those people enrolled (ie, I recently added a good half-million people to Medicaid for March...but the report didn't come out until May, so they showed up as a weird spike at the end when in fact they belonged a good 5 weeks earlier). This has no impact on the final tallies, it just makes the earlier graph data more accurate visually.
Finally, there's one more significant change: While the GOP House Energy & Commerce Committee's infamous "67% paid" report was utterly full of crap, the testimony given by major insurers Wellpoint, Aetna and Health Care Service Corp (which operates Blue Cross/Blue Shield in 5 states) has actually led me to tentatively lower my own 93% figure slightly, to a flat 90%.
Also, Michigan rape insurance disaster, and some numbers.
Michigan's Republican "Rape Insurance" law means that around 220 rape victims will be PENALIZED for the "crime" of being raped every year by either:
a) having to pay a $500 fine and undergo a painful, emotionally revolting surgical procedure, OR
b) having to undergo a minimum of 9 months of cruel & unusual punishment.
