Obamacare enrollment surging

  • HEALTHCARE.GOV: an improved website has led to a big uptick in enrollments
We noted the other day that traffic to healthcare.gov has been extremely heavy in the wake of improved performance after the Obama administration's self-imposed deadline that the site would work smoothly for the "vast majority" of users by December 1. It appears that the heavy traffic is now leading to a surge in enrollments. 

According to Politico sources, around 29,000 people signed up for private health insurance using the site on Sunday and Monday alone, more than the total number of people who signed up using the federal portal in all of October. 

This is promising news for the front-end consumer experience, though questions about the back-end transfer of data to insurance companies linger.
