People don't like their health plan options on the federal website
There's good news and bad news for President Obama and health reform today. The good news: young, healthy people are visiting the website. The bad: many of them and others visiting the site don't like what they're seeing. The Commonwealth Fund released a new survey today on who is visiting the federal marketplace and the performance of the website. It finds that 24% of those who are eligible for Medicaid or to enroll in a new plan visited the site in December, up from 17% in October. Still, 37% are unaware of the new marketplaces, down slightly from October.
