The Obama administration announced early Sunday that enrollment in the federal healthcare exchange passed the 1 million mark in December as more than 975,000 people signed up between December 1 and the December 24 deadline to ensure coverage beginning on the first of 2014.
Officially, the administration put the total of people now enrolled at more than 1.1 million people now enrolled and boasted that the site was able to support 83,000 concurrent visitors on December 23, the next-to-last day before the sign-up deadline. By contrast, the administration reported only 27,000 sign-ups in October --the website's first, error-prone month -- and 137,000 in November.
The administration has yet to provide a December update on the 14 states running their own exchanges. While California, New York, Washington, Kentucky and Connecticut have performed well, others are still struggling.
Now all they have to do is subtract the number of people that actually got policies after they signed up
Pffftt! I don't believe any numbers that come from the government or their contractors.
I have no plans on signing up. I cannot afford $2000 per month for two us of, just because we're older and have mild "pre-existing" conditions (ie, I had a hysterectomy, a ONE TIME surgery...now I have a pre-existing condition) and my husband smokes.
I don't believe what they say, but it makes little difference in my life. I'll pay the fine....it is much cheaper.
Meanwhile, I'll sit on the sidelines and wait for the entire debacle to crash and burn.
All you people complaining and crying about Obamacare. What is your alternative for the people who can’t afford health insurance.
