    I'm starting this thread to track all of the companies and organizations which are given waivers from ObamaCare.

    Here's the current list with the number of enrollees after the name of the org:

    1 Fowler Packing Co. 39

    2 Baptist Retirement 127

    3 BCS Insurance 115,000

    4 Local 17 Hospitality Benefit Fund 881

    5 Greater Metropolitan Hotel 1200

    6 UFT Welfare Fund 351,000

    7 Aegis 162

    8 Maritime Association 500

    9 Aetna 209,423

    10 UABT 17,347

    11 Reliance Standard varies

    12 QK/DRD (Denny's) 65

    13 Guy C. Lee Mfg. 312

    14 I.U.P.A.T 875

    15 HealthPort 608

    16 Jack in the Box 1,130

    17 Allflex 34

    18 Transport Workers 107

    19 Tri-Pak 26

    20 Cryogenic 19

    21 Metro Paving Fund 550

    22 Health Connector 3,544

    23 Health and Welfare Benefit System 41

    24 PS-ILA 8

    25 PMPS-ILA 15

    26 Maverick County 1

    27 Sanderson Plumbing Products, Inc. 326

    28 GS-ILA 298

    29 Allied 127

    30 CIGNA 265,000

    TOTAL ENROLLEES 968,765


    Approved Applications for Waiver of the Annual Limits Requirements of the PHS Act Section 2711 as of September 30, 2010


    A couple of observations:

    Some of these organizations have very low amounts of enrollees for waiver. I suspect that the actual numbers are higher.

    And we will certainly see more as the days roll by.

    And this doesn't include the state exemptions for Medicare Advantage.

    The best thing you can say about Obamacare is that you can bail out of it if you have the right political connections.

    This hard to imagine. Are you trying to say that political pay offs and favoritism have some connection to the Obama administration? Shocking!

    I'm thinking we should all apply for waivers.

    And as an aside, another Epic Fail of ObamaCare: approximately 8K people have signed up for the ObamaCare program for the uninsured, a far cry from the estimated 357K-400K that the Obamanoids had estimated. This certainly puts the math skillz they applied to Jobs Saved & Created in clearer perspective as well.

    In today's fierce moral urgency of change news, it turns out the market for government health insurance for the uninsured is about 50 times smaller than Obamacare proponents told us it would be. Of course, we opponents of Obamacare were arguing last year this problem was overblown, and it appears in retrospect even our most parsimonious estimates were vastly too generous:

    Mr. Obama declared at the time that "uninsured Americans who've been locked out of the insurance market because of a pre-existing condition will now be able to enroll in a new national insurance pool where they'll finally be able to purchase quality, affordable health care--some for the very first time in their lives."

    So far that statement accurately describes a single person in North Dakota. Literally, one person has signed up out of 647,000 state residents. Four people have enrolled in West Virginia. Things are better in Minnesota, where Mr. Obama has rescued 15 out of 5.2 million, and also in Indiana--63 people there.
    ...
    Combined federal-state enrollment is merely 8,011 nationwide as of November 1, according to HHS.

    This isn't what HHS promised in July, when it estimated it would be insuring 375,000 people by now, and as many as 400,000 more every year....

    I am glad you've decided to put these facts up. It bolsters what I had eluded to in another thread. Why all the requests for deferrals? Waivers... if Obamacare is the cat's meow it is supposed to be?
