Tens of thousands of Granite Staters Obtained Private Health Insurance Through ACA, Beating All Other States by Meeting 211% of Enrollment Goal
Concord, NH -- Yesterday, it was announced that 40,072 Granite Staters signed up for private health insurance through the health insurance marketplace established through the Affordable Care Act. New Hampshire led all other states, reaching 211% of our enrollment goal. New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement regarding the strong news.
"In spite of shady Koch funded groups flooding our state with misinformation and fear tactics, 40,062 Granite Staters have successfully signed up for private health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley. "New Hampshire's first year enrollment lead the nation by doubling initial federal projections. This impressive number of enrollments demonstrates that Granite Staters are utilizing the greater transparency, protections, and affordability of health insurance made possible by the Affordable Care Act.
"Republican candidates want to repeal Obamacare and have no plan to replace it. They would return us to the days when insurance companies could drop people when they got sick, charge women more money for care than men, or deny people with pre-existing conditions, and they would cost nearly 100,000 Granite Staters to lose their coverage. New Hampshire can't afford to go back to a broken system," added Buckley.
