Covered California’s Peter Lee nets bonus, Obamacare site nets 1.2 million enrollees
San Francisco Business Times

Covered California’s executive director, Peter Lee, has won a one-time $52,528 bonus for his role in launching the Obamacare exchange in the Golden State, which apparently netted 1.2 million enrollees all told during its first open enrollment period. The latter number is still unconfirmed and based on preliminary projections, spokeswoman Anne Gonzales told me late this morning. As of mid-April, Covered California was citing nearly 1.4 million people signed up, while noting that only about 80 percent had actually paid for their coverage at that point.
