CDC: Access to Healthcare Unchanged After ACA's First Year

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released early estimates of health insurance and access to healthcare from January through September 2014 that suggest Obamacare's impact on overall access to healthcare coverage has been negligible.

The findings are based on the National Health Insurance Survey, which asks three important questions:
Are respondents uninsured at the time the survey is conducted?
Have they been uninsured for at least part of the year?
Have they been uninsured for more than a year?
The CDC news release containing the estimates includes a chart which shows that "the proportion of long-term uninsured is about the same as it was circa 2000," notes John Graham of the National Center for Policy Analysis, a pro-free-market think tank.

But according to Graham, the data "masks a dramatic increase in government dependency among working-age adults," during this period, one which was not primarily the result of Obamacare.

The data shows that in 1997, 72.8 percent of those aged 18 to 64 had private health insurance coverage. By 2010, this had fallen to 64.1 percent.

By 2014, it had risen to 67 percent. And that estimate of the number with private coverage may be an overestimate, Graham writes, because it includes people who have bought subsidized health insurance on Obamacare exchanges.

"Health insurance bought on an Obamacare exchanges is not fully private" because "most of the premiums are paid by taxpayers," he notes.

But the increase in dependence does not appear to have resulted in an improvement in access to healthcare.

The proportion of people of all ages with "a usual place to go for medical care" was 87.8 percent last year, "the same as it was in 2002-2003," Graham writes.

Moreover, 5.7 percent said they failed to obtain needed medical care due to cost last year — the same as in 2003 and 2004.

The results show "that the effects of the 2008 financial crisis and recession, and slow recovery, far outweigh Obamacare's effect on access to healthcare," Graham concludes.

So after pumping Billions of dollars into the system the CDC says there is no noticeable effect! Wow! I'm sure Greg will know the answer to this! Shocked Shocked

Oh come on! Everyone has coverage. Everyone is saving money and everyone has their doctor of choice. Deductibles are affordable and tax season is a breeze.

I love that man of mine.

Still, try as they will to spin this as a negative.. the article points out the reality is that the Affordable Care Act IS improving the low levels from the Bush years.


Even Ted the Tin-foil Hat' Cruz signed up..

Well, when a REAL news outlet puts up the story, THIS is what you get (as opposed to NewsMax)...

Uninsured down more than 11 million since passage of Obama’s health care law, CDC reports

Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, Associated Press  March 24, 2015


WASHINGTON — The number of uninsured U.S. residents fell by more than 11 million since President Barack Obama signed the health care overhaul five years ago, according to a pair of reports Tuesday from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although that still would leave about 37 million people uninsured, it’s the lowest level measured in more than 15 years.

----------------------------------------------

The CDC reports compared the first nine months of 2014 with annual statistics going back as far as 1997, from the National Health Interview Survey. Among the highlights:

The number of uninsured dropped from 48.6 million in 2010 to 37.2 million for the period from Jan.-Sept. last year. That amounted to 11.4 million fewer uninsured since the signing of the health care law.

In 2014, about 27 million people said they had been without coverage for more than a year.

Some 6.8 million people were covered through the health care law’s new insurance markets during July-Sept. of 2014.

The most significant coverage gains last year came among adults ages 18-64. Nearly 40 million were uninsured in 2013. But that dropped to 32.6 million in the first nine months of 2014.
