CMS just released the 2017 final Open Enrollment changes. As expected, they declined. We expected between a 4.3% and 6.0% decrease due to President Trump’s executive order as before his inauguration, Healthcare.gov and the state based exchanges were both running even to slightly ahead of 2016 pace and then they cratered in the last eleven days.
I’ve embedded a public Tableau that looks at the county level changes of enrollment for states that were on Healthcare.gov in both 2016 and 2017. This is primarily a test case of me playing with a new presentation tool but I want you to play with it too. The tool is below the fold. Select the state and it should recalculate and recalibrate.
Updated to reflect percentage change
Ummmm, is there a way to get the % change? I’m clicking but can’t make heads or tails out of the absolute numbers.
@Paul W.: Not yet, I need to get other things done today before updating this very early pilot play around.
@David Anderson: Updated to show Percentage Change
Don’t know if this is already a “dead thread” but i’d love to know how whstvyou rhubkbif Al Giordano’s twitter TL on why it’s harder than the GOP thought to “repeal” ACA
1. The main reason Republicans are quickly choking on their proposed repeal of Obamacare is that it was so well constructed for this moment.
@David Anderson: I appreciate the effort, but Tufte would not be kind.
The color-bar is apparently showing decimal ratio changes, not percent changes. E.g Gwinette County. -5000 from 80,000 is about 5%, not about 0.05.
Can you recommend a way to get a relatively unassailable estimate of how many people would lose coverage in one congressional district? There’s a site called acasignups that has estimates, but I can’t get the page to load.
Could be my net connection… the little critters running data packets up and down the intertubes don’t like the cold or something.
@Lyrebird: The ACASignups.Net Congressional District Page is working here for me.
@Another Scott: Oh completely agree, this is not a Tufte chart — this is me trying to organize my thinking and you get the very rough drafts
