3.3 million enrolled on health marketplaces, including more young people, government says

The New York Times, February 13, 2014
Nearly 3.3 million people have signed up for health insurance through the marketplaces established by President Obama's health care law, and about one-fourth of them are young adults, the administration said Wednesday. The administration reported a modest uptick in the enrollment of young adults, a group avidly sought by insurers because they are usually healthier and need fewer costly medical services. In a new report on enrollment, the administration said that 1.9 million people had selected health plans in the federal marketplace from October through January, while 1.4 million chose plans in state-run insurance exchanges.
