Taxpayers will pay $53,000 per newly insured under Obamacare

According to a new analysis, the cost of Obamacare per newly insured will come in at a little over $53,000. From The Daily Caller

When the costs of Medicaid and CHIP’s publicly-funded health coverage is set aside, the total cost of private insurance plans and related spending comes in at $591 billion through 2024. At that rate, the taxpayer cost of each newly added private insurance enrollee would amount to $45,461.

When the CBO’s estimate total net amount of newly insured — whether customers have private coverage, Medicaid or CHIP — are compared to the health care law’s total cost over the next decade, the cost per person is slightly higher at $53,192.
