Sacramento Business Journal

Covered California and the federal government have both released enrollment figures for insurance plans. Now Covered California has broken down those numbers for the Sacramento region.

About 14,008 people started applications for health insurance in the state’s new health care exchange between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, according to Covered California. And of those, 7,031 people in Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer and Yolo Counties actually enrolled in health plans, subsidized or otherwise. That’s about 6 percent of the state wide enrollment, according to Covered California.
