FGA Report: ObamaCare Expansion States More Than Double Enrollment Projections

health-care-costs-660x400Today, the Foundation for Government Accountability released a new report, authored by myself and Jonathan Ingram. We surveyed every ObamaCare expansion state, comparing enrollment projections to actual enrollment.

Here’s what we found:

Altogether, 24 states that accepted ObamaCare’s expansion released enrollment projections in advance and have since reported at least one year of enrollment data. In total, these 24 states promised that “only” 5.5 million adults would ever sign up for ObamaCare expansion. However, actual sign-ups have surpassed these projections – and not just by a little bit.

Newly-obtained data from these 24 states shows that at least 11.5 million able-bodied adults have now enrolled in ObamaCare expansion – an overrun of 110 percent or more than double projections. Some states have signed up more than four times as many able-bodied adults as they said would ever enroll.
