Healthcare.gov enrolls people at about 38% of the pace it needs to

Business Insider, December 5, 2013
Politico is reporting an "enrollment surge" on Healthcare.gov. According to "an official familiar with the program," the website enrolled 29,000 people in private health insurance plans on Sunday and Monday, the first two days of December. That's more people than enrolled in the entire month of October. And by my back-of-the envelope math, it means Healthcare.gov is now enrolling people at 38% of the pace needed to reach the administration's goal of 7 million signups by March 31. That's not fast enough, but it's a marked improvement over the last two months (October's enrollment pace was 3% of what's necessary) and it's reason to hope that further improvements will be enough to prevent problems of low enrollment.
