Washington State: Est. 10,000+ QHPs to date, but the press release is a bit awkward to crow about...

On the one hand, moving from 2,000 in the first 3 days to a minimum of 6,000 (likely more like 10K, since the 6K refers only to "accounts" not "people") in the first 17 days is a perfectly reasonable point for Washington to be at right now.

On the other hand...well, here's the press release:

Today, the Exchange identified an error affecting 6,000 customer accounts enrolled in Qualified Health Plans. Early analysis indicates that our system integrator, Deloitte, ran an automated enrollment cancellation process in error. The affected accounts, which are a portion of the total number of customers who are enrolled in coverage starting on Jan. 1, 2015, experienced an erroneous cancellation of both their enrollment and payment for 2015 coverage.

Oops.

Well, on the plus side, the rest of the PR makes it clear that a) they're on top of it, b) it's gonna get resolved ASAP and c) it looks like this screw-up was Deloitte's fault, not the actual exchange itself (they call them out by name, which is noteworthy).

The "portion of the total" could mean anything, from 95% to a small fraction, but it means that the number of Washington residents enrolled is a minimum of 6K to date, anyway. Until they issue an exact/official number, I'm going to go with 10K for the moment.
