Another Talking Point Debunked

Republican have alleged that only 67 percent of Obamacare enrollees have paid their first premium, but insurance companies tell a different story.

According to the likes of Aetna, WellPoint and Blue Cross at least 80 to 90 percent have paid their first premium.

As many as 90 percent of WellPoint customers have paid their first premium by its due date, according to testimony the company prepared for a congressional hearing today. For Aetna, the payment is in the “low to mid-80 percent range,” the company said in its own testimony. Health Care Service Corp., which operates Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in five states including Texas, said that number is at least 83 percent.

At some point the GOP is going to run out of data points to attack and they’ll be left with nothing but conspiracy theories.
