Only 6 Enrollments on The First Day of Obamacare

Fox News has just released some shocking news from the House Oversight Government and Reform Committee, “internal notes from the Obama Administration meeting indicate that only six people signed up for Obamacare on the first day”. Then by October 3, only 248 enrollments have been recorded. These numbers are far away from the promised goal of 7 million new enrollments by the Obama Administration.

Healthcare industry consultant Robert Laszewski commented on the news interview, “the numbers are not surprising. Clearly the White House does not want insurance companies talking about what’s going on here”. Unfortunately, other reports have indicated that the numbers have been “trickling” in during the entire first month as they did during the first three days.

A report from CBS News interviewed Gerry Kominski, director of public health policy at UCLA said, “About half of the 14 million people who buy insurance on their own are not going to be able to keep the policies that they had previously”. Many who are able to keep relationships with their previous provider are facing similar difficulties as Natalie Willes, a sleep consultant for newborns in Los Angeles. In her interview she states, “Before I had a plan that had a $1,500 deductible, I paid $199 dollars a month. The most similar plan that I would have available (by ACA new laws) would be $278 a month. My deductible would be $6,500 dollars, and all of my care after that point would only be covered 70 percent”.

Maybe we will reach the 7 million enrollments the Obama Administration has promised. But the real questions are at what cost, will it be voluntarily, and exactly how honest is the Obama Administration being with the us?
