Larry Kocot Quoted in “ObamaCare Numbers Improve, Still Have Far to Go”


Larry Kocot, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the Washington, DC, office, was quoted in an article titled "ObamaCare Numbers Improve, Still Have Far to Go"

Following is an excerpt:

Enrollment numbers on the federal and state insurance marketplaces picked up sharply in November, but the figures still lag behind original forecasts. ?...

Brookings Institute visiting fellow Larry Kocot says that while the numbers are looking better, the administration still has a long way to go to reach its projected enrollment goals.

"We still don't know how many of these applications will result in actual enrollment with a premium paid by the enrollee," Kocot says. "Also, there will invariably be problems with initial on-boarding of enrollees on and after Jan. 1, so there is still a lot of work to be done.'"
