Covered California: Pick a number, any number
San Francisco Business Times

Covered California had new “enrollment” numbers to brag about this week, with nearly 829,000 folks signing up for private insurance on the Obamacare exchange through Feb. 15. Of that number, which leads the nation, 728,410 had signed on for private coverage as of Jan. 31. But only 80 percent had paid up through January, officials said, so the actual enrollment for Covered California’s first four months is closer to 583,000.
