Why Are The Uninsured Still Not Signing Up For Obamacare? – ‘The Why’

Welcome to a new edition of The Why.

Everywhere you look the media is pushing you telling you who to follow, what to watch and when to watch it.   You’re even sometimes told how to do it all.  Truth is, here at American Live Wire we do a bit of that too.  The big difference is we also tell you why.

You ask the questions.  We provide the answers.

Why are the uninsured still not signing up for Obamacare?” you ask? The first enrollment period is already over and there are still a lot of folks who remain uninsured. Your ALW answer man didn’t need help with this one.

“Why are the uninsured still not signing up for Obamacare?” The answer is for the most part the cost. If someone is unemployed or barely making enough to survive he is going to risk the (theoretical) tax penalty rather than even attempt to purchase a product he cannot afford and may never use.

Do you go to Vegas when you have no money? Insurance is a gamble. Two recently published surveys support the “cost” response in fact.

According to the new monthly Kaiser Health Tracking Poll, approximately “4 in 10 uninsured adults” stated that cost or affordability was the main reason for not jumping on the Obamacare bandwagon (or ambulance as the case may be). Let’s face it, no matter what the leader of our country says about mandates, as the surveyed noted 36 percent of the respondents again pointed to affordability.

You can’t get blood from a stone.  That theoretical 100 dollar or 1 percent fine is cheaper to these people. Sources at the Washington Post in fact indicate that “actual enforcement of the mandate will likely be light this year.”

“Why are the uninsured still not signing up for Obamacare?” Are there other reasons? Sure.

The survey revealed that 22 percent are either recently unemployed or thought they would get coverage through their jobs but it didn’t pan out. 11 percent claim they just missed the deadline (uh-huh, sure) and the remaining 9 percent were honest enough to admit they just pain didn’t want Obamacare.

Why are the uninsured still not signing up for Obamacare?” according to a new report  on Enroll America’s efforts to up enrollment in 10 states, the two top reasons why approximately 1,350 people didn’t sign up are: web site issues and—yet again—affordability.

“Why are the uninsured still not signing up for Obamacare?” Now you know.
