More than six weeks after the official rollout of Obamacare, far fewer Americans have signed up for health insurance under a state or federal exchange created by the law than have been kicked off their private plans because of the law’s mandated coverage requirements.
So far, according to Avik Roy at Forbes, the number of Americans who had been purchasing their own health coverage and who have now have received cancellation notices from their insurers is around 4.8 million, but many more are coming.
Nevertheless, The Wall Street Journal reports, a fraction of the American public has successfully signed up for care under an exchange. The paper reported that only “40,000 to 50,000” have signed up using the federal (Healthcare.gov) exchange, while only an additional 49,000 have done so in 12 of the 14 existing state exchanges.
