Obamacare: Agents signed up 43% of new California enrollment
Los Angeles Times

California fell short of its second-year enrollment goal for Obamacare, but don’t blame insurance agents. They accounted for 43% of new enrollment in Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange. That compares with 30% of people who enrolled themselves online or 10% who turned to a certified enrollment counselor or navigator. The strong performance of insurance agents in 2014 defied some predictions that online sign-ups and thousands of new enrollment counselors would diminish their role.
