Hat Tip To: 

A nice, simple, no-nonsense enrollment update from the DC exchange:

From October 1, 2013 to October 7, 2014, 60,771 people have enrolled through DC Health Link in private health plans or Medicaid:

  •  15,110 people enrolled in private health plans through the DC Health Link individual and family marketplace.
  •  14,486 people enrolled through the DC Health Link small business marketplace.
  •  31,175 people were determined eligible for Medicaid coverage through DC Health Link.

That's an increase of 708 QHPs, 627 in SHOP policies and 1,983 in Medicaid.
