Nearly 1 Million Floridians Sign Up for Obamacareby Laura Green | May 1st, 2014
Nearly 1 million Floridians signed up for an Obamacare plan in the inaugural year.
Only California enrolled more people — and not by much. The state ran its own marketplace. It signed up 1.4 million Californians.
Florida doubled its enrollment in the last month, making it one of a dozen states to do so.
Nationwide, more than 8 million people enrolled, according to data released by the Department of Health and Human Services today.
The numbers are still preliminary, in a sense, because they count everyone who signed up. Americans who do not pay their premium will not have coverage.
