Obamacare Numbers Cheat Sheet
Posted at 9 p.m. on Nov. 13, 2013
The Washington Post sorts through the latest Obamacare numbers and provides a cheat sheet. Here are some highlights:
106,856: The number of consumers who have chosen plans. It’s important to note, however, that many of these people have selected plans but have yet to pay for them.
26,794: The number who have signed up through HealthCare.gov.
42: The number of sign-ups in North Dakota, the fewest for any state for which numbers are available. The next lowest? Alaska at 53, and South Dakota at 58.
49%: The proportion of sign-ups that have occurred in just two states — California and New York — which have their own exchanges.
26.8 million: The number of unique visits on the state and federal Web sites so far. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius cited this statistic as a sign of consumer interest in the new plans.
Less than 1%: The Web site’s error rate — a reduction from 6 percent earlier in the rollout.
