Insurers: Number of Insured Has Climbed by Millions

Politico: “A panel of health insurers agreed Tuesday that the number of insured people in the country has climbed by millions, despite arguments by some Republicans that the insured population has declined because of canceled plans.”

Karen Ignagni, CEO of the trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans said that “the rush of sign-ups late in the Affordable Care Act’s first enrollment period – which ended March 31 – were significantly younger than the earliest enrollees.”
