NEW YORK (MainStreet) While Obamacare enrollment did increase during the open enrollment period ending in April, the program did not serve the uninsured, according to findings of a McKinsey Center for U.S. Healthcare Reform survey.
Of course, that uninsured demographic was the prime reason for its implementation. Only 26% of the enrollees reported being previously uninsured. By a three-to-one margin, enrollees in Obamacare were previously insured.
Furthermore, only 83% of the previously uninsured have paid their first premium compared to 89% of the previously insured who paid their premium. Also, according to the survey, only "only 21% of the previously uninsured respondents in our April survey who indicated that they had shopped for coverage reported enrolling in a plan."
