Healthcare marketers in the United States are starting to notice an interesting trend, as enrollment numbers fall and Obamacare enrollment rises.
According to a new report from the Healthcare Marketing Association (HMA), Obamacare enrollment dropped from an all-time high of 2.8 million in February to just over 2.6 million in March.
The reason for the decline is due to a lack of quality control on the federal exchange.
The number of people who received an Obamacare benefit increased by 9.3% in March, according to HMA.
The average amount of benefits for individuals who enrolled in the exchange increased by 11.5% during the same period, according the report.
The report found that many of the benefits are no longer guaranteed, which is the same reason many Americans are enrolling in health plans.
The HMA’s study also found that the number of insurers offering coverage on the exchange dropped by 16.5%.
The number in 2017 is projected to fall by nearly 4.8%.
While the numbers do not necessarily represent a decline in the health care market, many people have started to find other options, such as private plans or group policies, which are cheaper.
The latest HMA report came after President Donald Trump threatened to cut off federal funding to the healthcare industry if they did not get more Americans insured.
While this was widely reported on, the report showed that Obamacare enrollment was actually higher in March than it was in February.
This suggests that people are actually enrolling.
The enrollment numbers are also down for health insurance plans, but the numbers for Obamacare plans are up.
The health care industry has been facing financial woes and in the coming weeks, the Trump administration is expected to make a decision on whether to cut funding to them.
