Report: 7M people can get Obamacare early

The Hill, August 21, 2014
Almost 7 million people can sign up for health plans under ObamaCare even before the new enrollment period begins in November, according to an advocacy group. Enroll America, an ObamaCare enrollment group with close ties to the White House, said Wednesday that millions of adults are eligible to sign up for insurance before Nov. 15 because they have moved, gotten married, had children, lost insurance or become American citizens. The group analyzed U.S. Census Bureau data from 2010 to 2012 and found almost 2.7 million uninsured people and 4 million people who are likely to lose insurance have a qualifying life event that would make them eligible for the special enrollment period.
