ACA Subsidized Health Insurance Sign-Ups Expected to Fall Short

Utah’s Obamacare sign-ups are on the upswing this year despite efforts to dismantle the law

According to Get America Covered, a nonprofit group that promotes enrollment under the Affordable Care Act, nine out of 10 Floridians qualify for subsidies that bring the monthly cost of insurance down to $75 or less. That's about 20 percent higher than the comparable period previous year. This year's open enrollment ends December 15, and last time it continued through January 31. In addition to shrinking the enrollment period, the administration has cut certain subsidies to health insurance companies that cover low-income people; slashed the consumer outreach budget by 90 percent; and planned outages of the federal marketplace website, Healthcare.gov, during peak enrollment times. The president says the shorter enrollment period would benefit the ACA by putting it more in line with other insurance programs.

The Affordable Care Act rolled out its enrollment on November 1, 2017 and it's only a little over a week away from ending. Last year's deadline was January 31.

In week 4 of open enrollment, 504,181 people signed up for coverage, including 152,243 new enrollees. Sign-ups in these states could boost the final count, but the figures wouldn't be available for weeks.

People are still enrolling for plans at a faster rate than past year.
