With four weeks until the open enrollment deadline for Obamacare in California, about one in six people who picked Covered California health plans through Jan. 31 have not paid up, according to the four major health insurers who have grabbed more than 90 percent of the market. That means the 728,410-enrollee total that Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee boasted of last month could be about 15 percent too high, which would put the actual number at closer to 619,000 enrollees.
