January Health Insurance Sign-ups Meet Goal

January marked the first time since new health insurance markets opened last fall that a national monthly enrollment target was met, even though states are having varying success getting people to sign up.
The administration said Wednesday about 1 million people signed up for private insurance under President Barack Obama's health care law in January, extending a turnaround from when a dysfunctional website frustrated consumers.
An Associated Press analysis found that most states are still lagging when it comes to sign-ups under the health care law, and their success in getting those sign-ups could help determine if the White House reaches its unofficial goal of having 7 million signed up by the end of March.
Nearly 3.3 million people signed up from Oct. 1 through Feb. 1.
