Federal Health Exchange Sees Enrollment Flurry
New York Times

The Obama administration said Tuesday that nearly 2.5 million people had selected health insurance plans through the federal marketplace in the first four weeks of open enrollment this fall.

More than one million of those selections came in just one week, from Dec. 6 through last Friday.

“Millions of Americans want access to affordable quality health insurance, and they came to the marketplace to find it,” Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the secretary of health and human services, said in reporting enrollment activity under the Affordable Care Act.
