HealthCare.gov Enrollment Topped 100,000 in November, HHS Says

More than 100,000 individuals selected a private insurance plan through the federal online marketplace in November, HHS announced Wednesday.

But it was far short of the levels needed to meet the Obama administration's projection of 3.3 million enrollees by Dec. 31.

The numbers were released just before HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was set to testify Wednesday morning before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
