Some Early ACA Returns

Here are some of the early returns and reflections on the just "completed" enrollment period.   I put a qualification as one can still enroll in many states if they attest that they tried unsuccessfully.  Also, if there is a status change you can make a change and Medicaid enrollment is continuous.  While there has been considerable successes, there is much work to be done.  And Maryland has struggled considerably more than much of the country.  I sure hope the Connecticut fix will work.

Here are various news reports, videos, etc which highlight some of the reactions to the end of this first major enrollment period.
