Healthcare signups progress, but unlikely to meet goal

SFGate.com / Associated Press, March 13, 2014
The Obama administration said Tuesday that it's making steady progress on health care signups, but the White House needs something close to a miracle to meet its goal of enrolling 6 million people by the end of this month. The Department of Health and Human Services said more than 940,000 people signed up during February for private coverage under President Obama's health care law, bringing total signups to 4.2 million. But with open enrollment ending March 31, that means to meet the goal, another 1.8 million people would have to sign up by the end of the month, an average of about 60,000 a day.
