Obama admin: Federal health insurance market passes 1.1 million signups after December surge
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, December 29, 2013 6:02 AM EST
The Obama administration says that following a December surge more than 1.1 million people have now enrolled for health insurance through the federal government's improved website.
The Health and Human Services department says in the week leading up to Dec. 24, nearly twice as many enrolled as in the first part of December.
Sunday's number is only partial, because the administration didn't provide an update on the 14 states running their own websites. California, New York, Washington, Kentucky and Connecticut have done well, but others are still struggling.
