Sacramento Business Journal

Covered California has enrolled about 18,000 people so far in a special enrollment program for individuals who didn’t understand the tax consequences of not signing up for health insurance in 2015. Launched Feb. 23, the period ends April 30. The numbers are important because enrollment in Covered California is below projections. The program has about 1.4 million members, significantly behind a program target of 1.7 million.
