More than 300,000 people selected a health plan through in the second week of open enrollment, about 162,000 fewer enrollees than the first week, new government data released Wednesday show.

HHS said for Nov. 22-28, 303,010 people submitted an application to purchase a specific health plan. However, that week included Thanksgiving and Black Friday, the day that traditionally kicks off the holiday shopping season.
