The Hill: Obamacare Enrollments in the Federal Exchange Surged in December
"Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Marilyn Tavenner said in a statement that more than 975,000 people enrolled in a qualified health plan through the federal marketplace in December, following a rocky rollout in October.
Tavenner called the late surge 'welcome.'
'Our HealthCare.gov enrollment nearly doubled in the days before the January 1 coverage deadline compared to the first few weeks of the month,' she said. 'December enrollment so far is over 7 times that of October and November. In part, this was because we met our marks on improving HealthCare.gov: the site supported 83,000 concurrent users on December 23rd alone.'"
