START OF 2018 OPEN ENROLLMENT PERIOD

Time: D H M S

Yes, ACA exchange enrollment seems to have dropped below 7M. No, you shouldn't freak about it.

In my latest special entry over at healthinsurance.org, I've written a follow-up to my post from Thursday in which I concluded that the current number of ACA exchange QHP enrollments has probably dropped from the 7.3 million peak it hit in August down to around 6.8 - 7.0 million.

Conservatives from FOX News and Reason immediately pounced on this, of course.

The short version of both parts: Don't Panic.

The second part should be published Monday.
