Colorado Obamacare enrollment about half of worst-case estimate Read

Recommended Posts

Colorado’s Obamacare exchange has enrolled just about half of its worst-case scenario projections, with state leaders blaming public disinterest.

Just 6,001 Colorado residents have signed up for private insurance in the state-run exchange as of Connect for Health Colorado’s last announcement on Nov. 18, but The Denver Post reports Monday that the lowest enrollment estimate officials had made for mid-November was 11,108.

The highest projection came in at 30,944, while an estimate of average enrollment was 20,186 after one and a half months of open enrollment.

Many Colorado officials believe the low enrollment isn’t due to poor performance, though — instead, they argue, Colorado residents just aren’t interested.

Exchange board member Dr. Mike Fallon said “None of this surprises me… I don’t know what we as a board could have done. Health insurance is a difficult product to sell.” more: http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/26/colorado-obamacare-enrollment-about-half-of-worst-case-estimates/#ixzz2m65yE7Iq
