Colorado Update: 10,000 new enrollees in final week of 2013

Colorado has increased their private total enrollment from 42,771 on Christmas Eve to 52,773 as of New Year's Eve.

Not too much to add here. This is significant not just because of the hard number, which is impressive and pushes CO ahead of their CBO enrollment schedule (92K by 3/31/14; they're 57% of the way there while the period is only 50.5% over), but because of the implication--the state extended their January enrollment deadline to 12/27, and managed to increase their tally by more than 23% in that last week. If this trend held true for other late-enrollment states, it could mean some nice last-minute mini-spikes.
