Does the White House know how many people have paid Obamacare premiums?

By Peter Suderman | Reason

Perhaps the biggest frustration with the administration’s Obamacare enrollment reports is that they’re not really enrollment reports.

Instead, the reports count the number of people who have “picked a plan.” But not all of those people have paid, which means not all of them are truly enrolled in health coverage.

How many haven’t paid? That’s hard to say. In scattered news reports, several insurers have indicated that about 20 percent of people who signed up didn’t pay for the first month. But administration officials say they do not know, and are not systematically collecting that information.
