Covered California chief, Peter Lee, defends delay of enrollment figures
San Jose Mercury News

Peter Lee, the head of the state’s new health insurance exchange, said Monday that he will not reveal how many Californians have enrolled in health plans until mid-November.

But once the figures are posted, Covered California’s executive director told this newspaper’s editorial board in a wide-ranging interview, the enrollment numbers will be among the most detailed in the country. He said they will be broken down by city and region, the age of the enrollees and which kind of plans they have selected.
