Sacramento Business Journal

A total of 69,245 consumers submitted applications in the first four days of the second annual open enrollment at Covered California, program officials reported Thursday. Slightly over half — 35,877 people — were eligible for coverage through the individual marketplace at the exchange, and 11,357 picked a plan. “This is a dramatic increase from last year, when it took two weeks to get these numbers,” Covered California executive director Peter Lee told board members at their regular monthly meeting in Sacramento.
