Enrollment Numbers For Obamacare Expected to be Low

Posted: Updated:

 

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that as of last week fewer than 50-thousand people had successfully enrolled for insurance through the federally-run Obamacare website.

Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters could not confirm those numbers.

But Peters says due to problems with the website enrollment was expected to be low.

A senior administration official tells CNN the numbers reported by the journal are not official and that final official data for the first month of open enrollment is not yet ready. 

According to a CNN analysis, more than 344,000 people have signed up for Obamacare through state-run marketplaces, but have not yet technically completed the enrollment process. 

That number does not include applications submitted in paper or by phone.
