This report issued today by HHS provides quite a lot of information about health insurance exchange enrollment but still leaves me wondering about the key question: do exchange enrollees to date represent a typical slice of uninsured Americans or have we captured a disproportionate number of the poorest and sickest group so far? The true test will be in the claims experience and we might not have a clear answer to my question until the 2015 and 2016 renewal rates are announced.

  1. News later in June focused on the 1.6 to 2.1 million applications that has discrepancies that called into question the validity of the premium credit granted. It is unclear how many are still unresolved, but I suspect that a significant portion – perhaps 500,000 to 1 million enrollees will eventutally face a repeal or reduction in their insurance subsidy.
