The government’s stealth takeover of health insurance


The Department of Health and Human Services recently made headlines with a report touting that “the national uninsured rate hits an all-time low in early 2022.” It sounds encouraging, but look under the covers and what you find is a quiet but huge shift from private coverage to government-subsidized coverage.

HHS estimates there are 5.2 million fewer uninsured Americans than in 2020. Yet Medicaid rollovers during the pandemic have increased by 24 million, a 34% increase, while two million additional adults enrolled in ObamaCare exchange plans.
