Too soon to tell….

Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini said his company has picked up 500,000 paid members through the Obamacare exchanges as of April 24, and he expects that to plateau at 450,000 paid members by the end of the year, as some attrition occurs.
“Currently, there has been no positive impact from a bottom-line standpoint of these members because it’s way too early to tell,” he told Bloomberg TV on Thursday.
“In the first quarter we saw generally an older population sign up. So probably four or five years older than we expected on average. As we got near the end of March, we saw young people sign up, enroll. Now we’re trying to find what is the age demographic of people who actually paid in the program. And so that still needs to settle out.”
