Before we get to Sebelius and her blatant lie about not knowing the numbers, let’s take a look at the estimated totals to date. A whopping 40,000.
Roughly 40,000 Americans have signed up for private insurance through the flawed federal online insurance marketplace since it opened six weeks ago, according to two people with access to the figures.
That amount is a tiny fraction of the total projected enrollment for the 36 states where the federal government is running the online health-care exchange, indicating the slow start to the president’s initiative. The first concrete evidence of the popularity — and accessibility — of the new federal insurance exchange emerged as the White House has been preparing to release this week the first official tally of how many people have chosen coverage using the Web site, HealthCare.gov.
Now, let’s listen to what Sebelius said when asked about enrollment data.
Here’s the problem with those claims/lies.
According to one person with knowledge of the figures, slightly fewer than 40,000 people had selected a health plan as of last week. The figures are derived from reports that the government sends to each participating insurer early every evening, letting them know which customers have signed up that day. The figure was first reported Monday by the Wall Street Journal.
Sebelius can claim that data was not reliable or confirmed, but the totals are suggesting it WAS somewhat reliable and does reflect in the totals. The government sends new enrollee reports to the insurers on a daily basis. This suggests they’ve had a pretty good idea how many were signing up all along.
