OK, not much of a diary, but this is a major overhaul of the Graph, so I figured I should post it here. Besides, it's kind of pretty :)

After much thought, I've gone ahead and added the 3.1 million "young adults on their parents' plans" directly into the chart instead of just including a note about them.

I've also added the final column to the spreadsheet and have started representing it in the Graph (though it's only a tiny sliver right now): SHOP Small Business enrollments. Neither these, nor "direct" (off-exchange) private QHP enrollments "count" towards the mystical "7 Million" in the CBO projection, but they're still people signing up for ACA-compliant healthcare plans and therefore still count towards the larger total.

The grand total now stands at nearly 13.5 million...or 11.4 million, if you want to be a real stickler and not "count" Medicaid/CHIP recipients who were previously eligible but only "came out of the woodwork" thanks to the ACA publicity/exchange outreach/etc.

Oh, and yes, Medicaid/CHIP renewals have been removed from the total on the website, both in the spreadsheets as well as on the chart.

As a reminder, anyone who makes a donation (of any amount) will be given a user login which will remove the banner ads from the site as well as allowing you to post comments on blog entries.

Oh, as a little bonus nugget: The 36 states on the Federal exchange have finally exceeded the number of private enrollments of the 15 state-run exchanges. You can see this on the Private QHP Spreadsheet, at the very bottom:

Federal Exchange Total: 1,685,786       
State Exchange Total: 1,314,611

Not Broken Out By State Yet: 489,000   

Now, it's possible that the 489K "not broken out" could conceivably still tip the balance towards the state-level exchanges, but that's highly unlikely. For one thing, it'd have to be around an 80/20 split in favor of the state exchanges for that to happen. For another, I already have data from most of the state exchanges through as recently as 2 days ago, while almost all of the Federal exchange states are only updated through 12/28.

So, if anything, I'd be willing to bet that it's the other way around--a 4:1 split favoring the 36 Federal-run states.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
