What's the state of Obamacare right right now?

Some 10.3 million people actually enrolled in Obamacare for 2017, as of mid-March, Trump administration officials said Monday. of which’s down coming from the 12.2 million who signed up for coverage when open enrollment ended on January 31.

of which’s not uncommon for the numbers to drop since some consumers select plans, however don’t complete the enrollment process by paying their first month’s premium.

Last year, some 12.7 million people picked policies by the open enrollment deadline. however 11.1 million people had enrolled by the end of March, according to data released at the time by the Obama administration.

The Trump administration, which will be working to dismantle Obamacare, blamed the drop on the high cost of the plans.

“Not surprisingly, as costs continue to go up, fewer Americans can afford to pay more along with get less for healthcare,” said Health Secretary Tom cost. “Many individuals along with families across the country are tired of having their healthcare options dictated to them by Washington — particularly when those limited options are unaffordable.”

Premiums for the benchmark plan increased an average of 22% for 2017. Many insurers hiked rates after finding their enrollees were sicker than expected.

however the vast majority of Obamacare enrollees are shielded coming from these rate increases because they receive subsidies of which pay at least 0% of the cost of the benchmark plan.
