Maybe not--it's costing significantly less than it was supposed to cost.
But we have seen some interesting things on the price front.Overall, the health-care law will now cost 29% less for the 2015-19 period than was first forecast by the CBO when the law was signed in March 2010. Back then, the CBO and the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimated that for the last five years of their 10-year projection, Obamacare would cost $710 billion. Now, they expect it will cost $506 billion for the same period.
Here's a first: January hospital prices lower than a year ago
The prices that health insurers paid to acute-care hospitals declined in January  compared with the same month a year ago, a first since federal officials began to collect such data. Public sector and private payer efforts to push down costs could explain the drop, experts said.
You do also realize these are projections and not reality??
Don't worry, we have actual costs for the first year. It was more than a third cheaper than promised.You do also realize these are projections and not reality??
CBO Provides First Snapshot of Coverage Expansion Costs
The projections have consistently overshot the reality. Which is another way of saying the law has consistently cost less than it was supposed to.October 10, 2014 -- The cost of expanding insurance coverage under the health law in fiscal 2014 was far lower than budget experts predicted when Congress passed the overhaul four years ago, according to figures released this week by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
The preliminary numbers capture the expenses for the fiscal year during which the main coverage expansion provisions of the law kicked in.
The Treasury paid out $13 billion in subsidies to help lower-income Americans pay premiums for plans sold on insurances exchanges and in some cases, cover their out-of-pocket costs. By comparison, CBO projections in March 2010 pegged the cost of the subsidies at $19 billion for the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.
So next time someone asks you (or you feel the need to ask) when a federal program has been cheaper than promised, you have an answer! The ACA.
Any idea how the subsidies affect costs and do you even have a clue what CBO does and the accuracy of their PROJECTIONS??
In which case, again consider your question answered. Which program has ever cost less than promised? The ACA!
They seem to have significantly overestimated the cost of the ACA, I'll grant you that.Any idea how the subsidies affect costs and do you even have a clue what CBO does and the accuracy of their PROJECTIONS??
They over estimated the costs because the enrollment isn't as expected and people aren't going to sign up until the fines kick in. it is amazing how low you can get the costs with taxpayer subsidies, isn't it?
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
