U.S. says 13 million enrolled in private/public health plans
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Nearly 13 million people signed up for public and private health coverage during Obamacare's open enrollment period, including late sign-ups for private insurance through April 19, the U.S. administration said on Thursday.
The total includes 8 million people who selected private plans through state and federal insurance marketplaces and another 4.8 million who enrolled in the Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program, two government programs that serve lower income Americans.
