The Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, according to a tweet sent out Tuesday, has had 17,673 people sign up for health plans and 10,547 actually pay for a plan.
In a yawning understatement in a brief inside the business section, the Review-Journal reports, “Enrollment is still below the 118,000 sign-ups exchange officials projected based on the number of uninsured Nevadans. More than 600,000 residents lack coverage.”
Still below? That’s 9 percent of the projection and less than 2 percent of those lacking coverage.
According to the Nevada Division of Insurance, 24,623 people have had their existing individual insurance policies canceled — unable to keep their plans, whether they liked them or not. And ObamaCare was supposed to increase the number of people with insurance? Looks like a net loss in Nevada along of 14,000.
