There was a huge push, and in the end the final enrollment exceeded projections in both California and nationally, but the national toll polled well for our state. But…we still don’t know how many “new enrollees” were found, and what they found. Many of the newly enfranchised enrolled in Medicaid, which will cost us. Many enrolled in the individual exchanges, at a cost of $10 billion in tax credits, an average of $2,890 for each of the 3.5 million people who qualified for a subsidy as of March 1 So the final results are still to be counted, and more subsidies may be coming our way. How long will they be sustained, and what of the newly enfranchised?
It’s a Success! But at what cost? The Affordable Care Act in the final days
