While early “guesswork” had estimated the sign-up rates were not ‘terrific’, Covered California – the Obamacare exchange – has released data on the final enrollment rates. They are not great:
- *COVERED CALIFORNIA SAYS WEBSITE GOT 987,440 UNIQUE VISITORS
- *CALIFORNIA EXCHANGE COMPLETES APPLICATIONS ON 16,311 HOUSEHOLDS
Assuming each household is a ‘unique’ then that is a 1.65% sign-up rate. Doesn’t seem like the huge success so many have proclaimed.
