The Heritage Foundation has taken actual enrollment data from Medicaid and private insurance companies to clear up and see the real picture of Obamacare enrollments.

It has been found that just over 14 million people gained coverage from the end of 2013 to the end of 2015. Out of those 14 million people:

11.8 million gained their insurance through states’ Medicaid expansions and other Medicaid programs.

Enrollment in the individual/family health insurance market:  Added  5.9 million people.

Self-insured employer health insurance market:  Added 3.9 million people.

Fully-insured employer group health insurance market:  Lost 7.6 million people.

Resulting in a Net Gain in private market coverage:  2.3 million people.

Medicaid enrollments nationwide:  10.4 million people now have coverage offered in states due to those states’ Obamacare Medicaid expansions.

State Medicaid program enrollments: states that didn’t have a Medicaid expansion due to Obamacare have added  1.4 million people.

So, 84%  of of coverage gains from Obamacare actually came from Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Programs, not individuals seeking private insurance that they themselves found affordable.  Sources:  Heritage Foundation.
