Source Says 29K Enrolled in Two Days via HealthCare.gov
About 29,000 U.S. residents enrolled in health coverage through HealthCare.gov on Sunday and Monday, the first two days after the revamped website was launched, according to an unnamed source. The two-day enrollment figure -- which represents people who have selected a plan but not necessarily paid their first month's premium -- surpasses the 26,000 people who enrolled in coverage through HealthCare.gov in all of October. In November, just over 100,000 signed up for health coverage on the federal exchange site.
