Obamacare's use expected to spike beginning next week
The number of people seeking to use their new ObamaCare coverage for the first time is expected to spike next week. Representatives from healthcare companies, trade groups, and the Obama administration told The Hill that many who obtained new coverage under the law are using this week to learn about their plans and set up preliminary appointments. They're expected to turn out in force at the nation's clinics and hospitals as early as next Monday. "We are anticipating a surge in activity beginning next week," said Markeisha Marshall, a spokesperson for Walgreens, the country's largest pharmacy.
