START OF 2018 OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Time: D H M S

Apparently my 15 minutes lasted about 40.

This afternoon I'll be a panel guest on the nationally syndicated NPR show "To the Point with Warren Olney".

I'm told that the show will be recorded at 2pm eastern, but it actually airs at different times in different cities. The live feed will be available via Public Radio International's website. The podcast will be available at KCRW 89.9 FM's website after 4pm eastern.

If you want to listen via the actual radio (imagine that!) here's the syndication station list for various cities.


UPDATE: OK, show's over...

The podcast itself should be available for download by around 4:00pm Eastern.

I think I only spoke for perhaps 3-4 minutes total (I haven't actually listened to it myself yet), and I didn't get a chance to get into most of the key issues (paid/unpaid, off-exchange QHPs, Medicaid, etc.), but it was still pretty cool and he mentioned the name of the site several times, so that's nice. I very much appreciate the opportunity to get the word out about the number situation.

I made one flub: When he brought up the "Nate Silver of Obamacare" thing, I may have protested a bit too strongly lol...

Anyway, the important thing is that I made it clear that barring anymore major technical snafus, 6M should be easily doable and a higher number is quite likely at this point.
