The official Twitter account for the Nevada Obamacare exchange released some enrollment figures yesterday.
That’s about one paid enrollment per 600 unique visitors to the website.
State officials feel good about these results, at least in comparison to the federal program.
“The big difference really is that it works,” C. J. Bawden of Nevada Health Link told a local news outlet yesterday. “Really, we could easily have been part of a federal system that just doesn’t.”
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, echoed those sentiments:
“I felt it was prudent and in Nevada’s best interest to have a state-run exchange,” he said. “And I think that, at least over the course of a month and a half, I think that has proven out to be the more prudent choice.”
We’d have to agree. If the benchmark is HealthCare.gov, any alternative is preferable.
Meanwhile, more than 24,600 Nevadans have received cancellation notices so far.
So: Roughly 50 cancellations for every one paid Obamacare enrollment. Is that what Nancy Pelosi was saying we’d find once she passed the bill?
