Studies Show That Obamacare Is A Disaster Headed For Some Serious Trouble
In early April of 2014, President Obama did not waste any time in taking a victory lap of sorts regarding the alleged success of his signature piece of legislation, the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as the Obamacare. According to his statement, 7 million enrollees had been reached, six months after the rocky roll-out of the online federal health exchange that was establish by the law. The total number of enrollees were close to 7.1 million and that most of those who enrolled waiter until the last minute to sign up for the health insurance.
Two studies show claims which may possibly lead to the decline of the Obamacare or Affordable Care Act in the United States. One reason is that even up to date, the Department of health and Human Services still has no was to quantify important data about those consumers signing up for health insurance through state and federal exchanges. Also, the systems designed by HHS still cannot determine basic and critical information about enrollments such as whether payment has been made.
Too few young invincibles. One of the study on Obamacare shows that the websites used by the HHS were not designed to even collect important demographic data like which enrollees had pre-existing health insurance coverage, as well as definite age ranges, despite the fact that the success of the law’s structure depends on getting previously uninsured and health Americans to become locked into expensive comprehensive, government-mandated insurance plans.
Less equals more. More Americans are enrolling in Medicaid and not in private health insurances. Some 6 million people enrolled in the taxpayer-funded program earlier studies found that a relatively small number of those came from the expansion built into Obamacare. Most of the Medicaid enrollees would have been eligible for the program prior to the passage of the ACA. Meanwhile, another 8.2 million more people enrolled in employer-provided health coverage, as 7.1 million left the other category, and another 1.6 million left individual insurance markets. Recent statistics show that only about 3.9 million people actually enrolled in health plans through the state and federal exchanges and not the 7.1 million that Obama has claimed.
