Gallup: Number Of Uninsured Hits Five-year Low

For the second straight month, Gallup polling shows that the number of people reporting they are uninsured has decreased. In fact, this report, for the end of January and beginning of February, shows the lowest rate of uninsured people in five years, down to 16 percent.
Gallup: Number Of Uninsured Hits Five-year Low
If you dig deeper into the numbers you would see there were upticks in people reporting they had received insurance through Medicaid (from 6.6 to 7.4 percent) or the individual market (17.2 to 18 percent) since the last quarter.
Those purchasing on the individual market would most likely be using the exchanges (although this is an assumption). Therefore this is the kind of trend you'd expect to see from new enrollments because of Obamacare.
