Enrollment Deadline For Affordable Care Act Quickly Approaching

Senate Passes Tax Bill, Individual Mandate Repeal in 51-49 Vote

Senate Passes Tax Bill, Individual Mandate Repeal in 51-49 Vote

More than 3.6 million people signed up for a health plan in the first five weeks of the Affordable Care Act's open enrollment period, the CMS said Wednesday.

There are a number of changes to the ACA this year.

During previous ACA enrollment periods in the past two years, more than 7.2 million people had signed up for coverage when the period was nearly 75% complete, according to an analysis by consulting firm Avalere Health.

But the CBO also estimated that the Trump administration's October 12 decision to stop making the cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers would result in 20 percent premium increases, Chris Sloan, a senior manager with health-care policy consulting firm Avalere Health, told me in an interview.

But social media campaigns picked up the slack.

Congress is on a path that appears to be heading toward repealing Obamacare's individual mandate, and health insurers have long warned that repealing the penalty for not having insurance while guaranteeing coverage will lead to spiraling premiums and more uninsured people.

The individual mandate repeal tucked into the Senate GOP's tax bill would result in higher premiums and increase the likelihood of bare counties, especially in rural Republican areas, health care experts say.

The enrollment deadline in MI is December 15.
