Report: Obamacare Could Force 80 Million Off Employer-Provided Plans


Experts predict that close to 80 million people with employer-provided health insurance could be forced off of their plans due to noncompliance with Obamacare, Fox News reports.

That number amounts to about half of all people who currently have employer-provided coverage.

Last week, an analysis by the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, showed the administration anticipates half to two-thirds of small businesses would have policies canceled or be compelled to send workers onto the ObamaCare exchanges. They predicted up to 100 million small and large business policies could be canceled next year.

According to projections the administration itself issued back in July 2010, it was clear officials knew the impact of ObamaCare three years ago.

In fact, according to the Federal Register, its mid-range estimate was that by the end of 2014, 76 percent of small group plans would be cancelled, along with 55 percent of large employer plans.

Many are losing insurance because the plans they currently have do not provide coverage and certain benefits that Obamacare mandates.

Additionally, employers are stuck with higher prices under Obamacare.
