Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told reporters that, as of November 2, just over 100,000 people enrolled in health insurance plans through the exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act.
Business Insider: “Of that number, only 26,794 came through HealthCare.gov, the federal exchange site that serves 36 states. 79,391 came from state websites… The number is far from the 500,000 sign-ups the Obama administration expected in the first month.”
Sarah Kliff notes that this number includes “people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.”
