Health insurers: Payment rates above 80 percent

WASHINGTON — Health insurance companies are telling Congress that more than 80 percent of people who've signed up under the new health care law have gone on to pay their premiums.

That's in line with what individual insurers have said on earnings calls with analysts and elsewhere in recent weeks.

Company representatives were testifying at a House hearing run by Republicans who are skeptical of the Obama administration's claims of higher-than-expected sign-ups.

A GOP report last week suggested the payment figure could be significantly lower — and that would undermine the administration's claims. But Wednesday's testimony from representatives of Aetna, Wellpoint and other insurers indicated otherwise.

That sort of apparently irrefutable evidence is not going to fool many on the ADG comment pages.
