Let the MNsure Enrollment Spin Begin
Dayton Administration Hiding Reality Again
Minnesota’s Obamacare exchange, MNsure, continues to stumble to enroll private pay customers.
Obamacare architect and MIT professor Jonathon Gruber’s original analysis, for which the Dayton administration paid$329,000, projected MNsure would have 600,000 private pay customers.
The Dayton administration subsequently reduced that number to 300,000 paying customers.
MNsure enrolled 50,000 paying customers last year. That’s 1/6 of Dayton’s projection, and 1/12 of Gruber’s.
The Dayton administration had estimated 100,000 paying customers for 2015. Recently they had to reduce that to 67,000 paying customers.
So far 24,000 paying customers have enrolled.
With enrollment at 24,000 this week, MNsure extended the enrollment deadline. Amazingly, news reports state that enrollments were going up. Really? Compared to what?
Instead of fixing this failing program, Dayton’s administration is busy spinning the numbers!
