White House, Enroll America Ties Prompt Insurer Concerns
Insurers are becoming increasingly concerned about the connection between the Obama administration and Enroll America, a not-for-profit coalition of groups focused on implementing and raising awareness about the Affordable Care Act's insurance exchanges. Former and current Obama administration officials have adopted leadership and fundraising positions with the coalition. According to one official who works closely with insurers, Enroll America feels like "just an arm of the administration" and insurers are feeling pressured to make financial contributions to the group.
