We have predicted before that the ACA will not solve the problem of the 40 to 60 uninsured American’s. In fact, it doesn’t even begin to address the problem.
It appears we have 6.0 million to 7.0 million now enrolled in ACA. Many of these (a number unknown because no one seems to want to tell us) were already covered in a plan that was canceled, or were on Medicaid, etc. Only a small portion of these insureds were uninsured before their enrollment.
