Charles Gaba


In 2013, when neither the government nor the mainstream media provided consistent, reliable reporting of enrollment data for the Affordable Care Act, Charles Gaba launched as a hobby, using crowdsourcing to track enrollments in real time. He has since expanded his analysis to include the impact of the ACA’s Medicaid Expansion, SHOP exchanges, BHP provision, Silver Loading, off-exchange individual market enrollment, annual average premium rate changes and a wide range of healthcare policy/health insurance-related issues.

His work has been cited and used as a resource ever since by media outlets spanning the ideological spectrum including the Washington Post, Forbes, Bloomberg News,, MSNBC, the New Republic, USA Today, the CATO Institute, National Review Online and The New York Times among others, as well as prominent medical journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and The Lancet.
