In July, Louisiana’s insurance department announced it was shuttering that state’s co-op. The following month brought news that Nevada’s co-op would also close. On September 25, New York ordered the shutdown of Health Republic Insurance of New York, which had the largest enrollment of all of the co-ops. Then, within the space of a week in mid-October, the number of failures doubled from four to eight, as state insurance regulators announced that they were closing the co-ops in Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado and one of the two in Oregon. Last week came news that South Carolina’s co-op will be closed, followed this week by the announcement that Utah’s co-op is also being shut down."

"And the states that participated most fully, by building and running their own exchanges, are now struggling to maintain the systems that they built under Obamacare. As the Times points out, it’s not just Vermont that’s struggling: Hawaii looks increasingly likely to shut down its exchange due to its inability to raise operational funds. Massachusetts, Maryland, and Oregon created exchanges that essentially didn’t work at all. California’s exchange is already running an $80 million deficit. Some of the states are reportedly looking at ways to cut costs by integrating systems."

In 2013 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that the Obamacare insurance exchanges would enroll an average of 22 million people during 2016."
