IRS: 330,000 Received Obamacare Subsidy Calculations


The Internal Revenue Service said Saturday that more than 330,000 people have managed to get far enough in the enrollment process to learn how much financial assistance they’ll receive purchasing coverage, the Washington Post reported.

The Obama administration has released no official enrollment data to date, but the IRS figure gives an idea of how many Americans so far have successfully sought financial assistance to enroll in a health care plan on the Obamacare marketplace.

The IRS told the Post that it already responded to more than 1.3 million personal data requests for information to fill out applications on the health care marketplace, receiving about 80,000 such requests per day. 

The White House plans to release the first official enrollment totals in mid-November.
