Wonkblog provides nine facts you need to know before reading the health insurance exchange enrollment numbers.
Here are some highlights:
“1. There have been 846,184 applications completed. Because many of these applications are for families, they cover 1,509,883 people. But only 106,185 have chosen an actual plan.”
“4. About 75 percent of the sign-ups come from the 14 state-based marketplaces. Those marketplaces have had about 79,000 people sign up, compared with the 27,000 people who have purchased coverage in the federal marketplace.”
“7. Lots of shoppers on HealthCare.gov are turning to paper applications. Thirty-three percent of sign-ups in the federal exchange have been done offline. In states, that number stands at just 3 percent.”
