I just ran into another HR Director who told me that their company eliminated their employer-sponsored health insurance plan and sent everyone to http://www.healthcare.gov. There were previously 75 people covered, and now they are through Obamacare. Here’s a question, should those 75 people be counted in the Obamacare numbers as positive enrollment? Are they +75? Should it be net Zero since no new people are covered? OR, should it be -75 since 75 people used to be covered in the private markets, and are now subsidized on the government plan?
I am not listing the name of the company, since I do not have their permission. They are not current clients of mine.
