Next Wednesday's report thru 1/09 should total 6.73M QHPs

Not much to say here. The past 2 weeks were both dampened by Christmas (96K for the week) and New Year's (103K for the week). With the holidays out of the way, things should be ramping up again; the only question is by how much? I'm gonna be cautious and go with about a 35% bump over last week, to around 140,000 on the federal exchange, bringing total plan selections to around 6.73 million QHP selections for Healthcare.Gov through tonight (January 9th). As always, I'll be happy to have underestimated a bit.

Add in the other 14 states, and the national QHP total should be at around 9.05 million through today.
