California health care sign-ups exceed projections
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A late surge of sign-ups pushed California’s health insurance exchange nearly 100,000 enrollees beyond the original projections of the Obama administration, the agency that runs the marketplace announced Thursday.

Nearly 1.4 million Californians selected a policy through the state’s exchange by Tuesday’s end of open enrollment, and 88 percent of those were eligible for government subsidies to help reduce their monthly premiums.
