  • Enrollments picking up pace, but still lagging: November more than doubled that with 259,000 sign-ups.
  • Federal exchange (in 36 states): All told, more than 166,000 people have signed up through the federal exchange.
  • State exchanges (in 14 states plus D.C.): November had 148,000 sign-ups

  • Site traffic: More than 39 million unique visitors to state and federal exchanges since the October 1 launch. Between 12:01 a.m. Monday, Dec. 9, through 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, alone saw more than 800,000 visitors per HHS.
  • Medicaid expansion of 803,000 through November 30.
