Obamacare has taken a toll on sign-ups through online health insurance giant eHealth Inc., and employment at the company’s Gold River call center off Highway 50.

The company laid off 72 employees at the center March 10, according to information filed with the state Employment Development Department. A number of executives, including senior vice president Robert Hurley, still work there, eHealth spokesman Nate Purpura said. He declined further comment. In 2012, the office had more than 100 employees.
