San Francisco Business Times

Covered California, the state’s Obamacare exchange, is expected to announce its “enrollment” totals in private plans later today, but was scooped by the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, which says 1.2 million folks have signed up or renewed coverage in the open enrollment period that ends Feb. 15. That’s about 500,000 short of Covered California’s stated goal for this open enrollment period, with 18 days to go. Up until now, Covered California, led by Executive Director Peter Lee, has announced how many people have signed up for new plans this go-around, about 229,000.
