People don't like their health plan options on the federal website

Business Insider, January 10, 2014

There's good news and bad news for President Obama and health reform today. The good news: young, healthy people are visiting the website. The bad: many of them and others visiting the site don't like what they're seeing. The Commonwealth Fund released a new survey today on who is visiting the federal marketplace and the performance of the website. It finds that 24% of those who are eligible for Medicaid or to enroll in a new plan visited the site in December, up from 17% in October. Still, 37% are unaware of the new marketplaces, down slightly from October.
