UPDATE: Dear HHS: 2.7M + 1.4M does NOT equal 4.4 Million Medicaid Enrollees.

Do me a favor. Go to the February HHS Report right now, scroll down to pages 21 & 22, and enter the numbers in Column 5. Go ahead, I'll wait.

Done? OK, according to the HHS Dept., when you tally up all of the Medicaid/CHIP determinations in Column 5 from both pages, according to the report, the grand total are supposed to be 4,377,932.

The subtotals (2,706,404 for the State-Based Marketplaces and 1,378,871 for the Federal Marketplace) all tally up correctly.

However, when you add the two together, guess what?

2,706,404 + 1,378,871 does not equal 4,377,932

In fact, if you add those two together you get 4,085,275, over 290,000 less.

What's the deal?

UPDATE: Just received the following responses via Twitter:
