Where Sacramento region stands for health insurance sign-ups
Sacramento Business Journal

A total of 45,998 consumers in the four-county Sacramento area signed up for health insurance through Covered California by the end of February, up 16 percent from enrollment at the end of January. Eighty-nine percent of enrollees are eligible for subsidies to help them afford premiums. Total sign-ups for the region significantly exceed initial estimates for the entire open enrollment period, which still has two weeks to go. When the enrollment period launched Oct. 1, a total of 28,726 local sign-ups were projected.
