Early figures from the first and next month of Healthcare.gov

  • 800k users were expected to register for healthcare coverage using the website set-up to access the nation’s health insurance exchange, according to new information from the U.S. Centers for Medicaid and Medicare. That averages out to just under 27 thousand people per day, a mind-boggling low prediction given the millions who flooded the site at launch on October 1..
  • 17k registrations can now be processed each hour, according to CMS head Marilyn Tavenner, and the pages have been altered to make usage less confusing/time-consuming for those trying to register. Official numbers, on the total number of Americans who successfully registered for health insurance on the site during October, are expected sometime next week. source
