65-85% Of ObamaCare Enrollees Already Had Insurance
This is hilarious. So much for all the grand goals of ObamaCare.
Check it out:
A new study proves that ObamaCare is not decreasing the number of America’s uninsured. What we really have here is a ridiculously expensive taxpayer-funded shell game that allows ObamaCare to cancel your insurance, make it more expensive, re-enroll you through the ObamaCare exchanges, and then claim the program is a success and here to stay. Naturally, our pathetic media plays right along.
Finally, someone has done some actual reporting and discovered this truth:
65-89% of Obamacare exchanges enrollees were previously insured …
HealthMarkets, a insurance holding company based in Texas, conducted its own survey based on the 7,500-or-so people that the company enrolled in exchange-based plans. Based on their survey, obtained by Wilde and Mathews, only 35 percent of enrollees were previously uninsured. 10 percent previously had employer-sponsored coverage, but were dropping into the exchanges either because the exchanges offered a better (i.e., taxpayer-subsidized) deal, or because their employer had stopped offering coverage.
15 percent previously had individually-purchased coverage, but their old plans had been rendered illegal by Obamacare and were canceled. The remaining 40 percent were people previously covered under the old individual market, a market that was substantially less expensive than the Obamacare exchanges.
