My work soon caught the attention of major media outlets, and has been cited and used as a resource ever since by media outlets spanning the ideological spectrum including the Washington Post, Forbes, Bloomberg News, Vox.com, MSNBC, the New Republic, USA Today and The New York Times among others, as well as prominent medical journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet.
Since launching this project, I've expanded my analysis to include the impact of the ACA's Medicaid Expansion, SHOP exchange, BHP provision and a variety of other Obamacare-related programs.
I've also expanded into tracking things like off-exchange individual market enrollment, annual premium rate change averages and a wide range of healthcare policy/health insurance-related issues, including the pros and cons of moving towards single-payer healthcare, the "public option", lowering the Medicare eligibility age, and so on.
It should be noted, however, that aside from one occasional freelance piece exception, none of the media outlets above actually *pays* me for my work. I do have a few banner ads on my site, but the revenue from these only covers a portion of the extensive time and effort which goes into maintaining it. Donations are tremendously appreciated. Until now I've utilized a simple PayPal button on the site itself, but I've decided to give GoFundMe a shot to see how that works out.
In addition to my gratitude, I also add anyone who makes a donation to the official ACA Signups mailing list. I send out a weekly digest including a wrap-up of the past week, and also occasionally send out special bulletins when there's a major development (for instance, last June's King v. Burwell Supreme Court decision).
