Just 2.4 Million ObamaCare Customers Paid Their First Premium

When do you get kicked off for nonpayment?
Check it out:

Just 67 percent of Obamacare enrollees in federally-run marketplaces had paid their premiums by April 15, bringing the federally-run Obamacare enrollment tally to only 2.45 million, according to documents provided to the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The Obama administration has been heavily promoting that 8 million Americans selected plans on Obamacare marketplaces, but has refused to release any data on how many purchased their plans.

According to all 160 insurers participating in the federal exchanges, just 2.45 million people paid their first month’s premium by April 15. That accounts for 36 states, although high-enrollment state-run Obamacare exchanges — like California with its 1.4 million sign-ups — aren’t included.

The 67 percent payment rate as of April 15 is markedly lower than the 80-85 percent that experts have predicted will end up paying their premiums. April 30 is the final day for most federal exchange customers to make their payments.
