Poll: 21% of Exchange Website Visitors Have Enrolled
Twenty-one percent of adults who visited the state and federal health insurance exchange websites have enrolled in coverage, according to a survey released Monday by the Commonwealth Fund. The survey -- which was conducted between Oct. 9 and Oct. 27 and included responses from 4,035 adults -- also found that 17% of individuals who are eligible for coverage either visited the online exchanges or requested information about the exchange plans through the mail, phone or in person. Of those individuals, 58% said they were considering enrolling in or seeking out federal subsidies before the open enrollment period ends.
