Posted at 6:58 a.m. on March 31
Bruce Japsen, Forbes: With one day left to sign up for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act, the Obama administration said Sunday the healthcare.gov website has supported more than 8 million visits since last Sunday.
“The last-minute surge of customers could put the 7 million number within reach if the calls and site visits turn into people actually selecting plans, according to statistics released this afternoon. The final day of open enrollment is Monday, March 31 to obtain coverage yet this year.
“‘Over the past week the site has handled record consumer demand well – supporting more than 8.7 million visits since last Sunday, with 2 million alone this weekend,’ the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said.”
