ACA Enrollment In Georgia Falls 16 Percent In 2017

Feb 7, 2017

More than 9.2 million Americans are covered by the Affordable Care Act this year, about 500,000 less than in 2016.

Georgia is among the states where enrollment declined.

Nearly 494,000 Georgians signed up for Affordable Care Act in 2017.

That's a 16-percent drop from the previous year, according to Georgia Health News.

Most of the enrollees — about 378,000 people — are from Metro Atlanta.

The Savannah area had the second-highest number of enrollees with nearly 41,000, followed by the Augusta and Macon markets respectively.

President Trump has repeatedly blasted the ACA, also known as Obamacare.

He and the Republican-led Congress say they are focused on repealing it.
