Government Officials Slash 2015 Obamacare Sign-up Forecast

Federal officials on Monday sought to lower expectations for upcoming enrollment in Obamacare, announcing that they now believe that only between 9 million and 9.9 million people will be enrolled in Affordable Care Act health insurance plans by the end of 2015.

That is well below the 13 million people that the Congressional Budget Office has projected for Obamacare enrollment by the end of 2015. The Health and Human Services Department also said it now appears that it will take longer – perhaps quite a bit longer – than 2017 to reach a “steady state” of 25 million Obamacare enrollees that the CBO had been projecting.
