ProPublica: Federal Health Insurance Exchange Activity Remains High
The number of people signing up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act was about 5 million on April 19, the end of the open-enrollment period.
Though media coverage of the numbers has faded since then, a new report by ProPublica shows there have been 1 million transactions since then — an unexpectedly high number.
Charles Ornstien of ProPublica joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss what these numbers mean for the rollout of the Affordable Care Act.
