Administration Releases Upbeat Obamacare Signups Report

Midway through sign-up season, more young adults are getting coverage through President Barack Obama’s health care law. The number of new customers is also trending higher, officials said Tuesday in an upbeat report.

About 8.3 million people have signed up this year, surpassing last year’s total by almost 2 million. Outside analysts who reviewed the administration’s update said it reflects encouraging progress, but that may not dispel questions about the long-term future of the health insurance markets created under Obama’s 2010 overhaul. Premiums have been going up and getting new sign-ups remains a challenge.
