This final note following up to our story from yesterday about Affordable Care Act enrollment. The official figures came out this afternoon from the Department of Health and Human Services. The breakdown goes like this:
Nearly 27,000 people signed up through healthcare.gov.
79,000 or so enrolled through state exchanges.
The precise number is: 106,175 sign-ups through the first month of Obamacare.
Politico’s Ben White provided this bit of context:
Capacity at the Big House, Michigan Stadium, in Ann Arbor, Mich., is 109,000.
