Since 2013, the number of uninsured Americans has fallen by an estimated 15 million, predominantly as a result of the Affordable Care Act. During last year’s open enrollment period, 12.7 million people either re-enrolled in a health plan or bought a new health plan through the government-sponsored marketplaces (9.6 million at Healthcare.gov; 3.1 million on state-run exchanges). And because health care plans are increasingly prone to change, about 70 percent of those re-enrolling at the federal site wisely shopped around for a better deal this year.
