Between 40,000 and 50,000 people have enrolled in health insurance through HealthCare.gov as of last week, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday. The Obama administration is expected to release official enrollment data this week.
Citing “two people familiar with the matter,” the newspaper reported that “private health plans have received enrollment data for between 40,000 and 50,000 federal marketplace customers.”
HealthCare.gov serves more than 30 states. Earlier Monday, an independent analysis had concluded that about 50,000 people have enrolled so far through state-run marketplaces, which operate in 14 states and Washington, D.C.
The Obama administration had set a pre-launch goal of 500,000 October enrollments.
