estimate: 70% of 15m individual market insured qualify for subsidy


From Ezra Klein’s WonkBlog:

About 15 million people currently purchase health insurance on their own, using the individual market. And about 70 percent of them — about 10.8 million people — will qualify for the financial help buying coverage under the health-care law, according to a new study out Thursday from Families USA

This is huge. To not have ready is killing the effectiveness of this law. Really, it’s the part of the law that has been a huge disappointment & stopped a long string of successes with implementation and improved medical care.
