According to an Organizing for America tweet six million Americans now have health insurance because of ObamaCare. This includes 3.9 million who have enrolled in Medicaid. But where does the 3.9 million figure come from? That number (through October and November) turns out to include:
- Medicaid and CHIP eligibility determinations made directly through state Medicaid and CHIP offices in every state.
- Medicaid and CHIP eligibility determinations made directly through state-based marketplaces (where the state is running their own marketplace).
- New eligibility determinations as well as renewals — i.e., people previously enrolled in Medicaid who are deemed eligible for another year.
What about Medicaid or CHIP eligibility determinations made through healthcare.gov? Through November, that figure was about 750,000.
