ObamaCare Touts 6 Million Enrollees, But What Is the Real Number?

The HHS announced today that there are now 6 million enrollees within the new ACA program.  However, what they failed to announce is that many of these enrollees had healthcare coverage last year, and they applied for new coverage only after discovering their previous plans had been canceled.  According to the National Review, the HHS release is “broadly phrased” and  “while the extent of the Medicaid expansion has been way overstated, that plus the provision to keep under-26-year-olds on their parents’ plans means that easily 6 million Americans — a good number more, really — now do have health coverage because of the ACA.”  Nevertheless, are the numbers still accurate?  Can one presume that people are enrolling because they are uninsured or rather, because they are now compelled to find coverage due to the cancellation of their plans?
