Does this mean the plan is working? The Wall Street Journal does the math and finds that the net increase in people with healthcare insurance now stands at negative four million:
A charitable reading suggests that ObamaCare’s net enrollment stands at about negative four million. That’s the estimated four million to five and a half million people who had their individual health plans liquidated as ObamaCare-noncompliant—offset by the 364,682 who have signed up for a plan on a state or federal exchange and the 803,077 who have been found eligible to receive Medicaid.
In order to reach the CBO’s estimate of 7 million more people insured under the PPACA than without it, that means that 11 million people will need to enroll. When the small group plans expire as do the waivers of the large group plans, that number will grow.
