January saw about 1.15 million sign-ups through federal and state insurance exchanges under Affordable Care Act, often known as Obamacare, four months into the six-month enrollment period, Xinhua reported.
The latest enrollment data showed that about 3.3 million Americans have signed up for private insurance plans under Obamacare from last Oct 1 through Feb 1.
The January data has shown a “healthy growth” in enrollment in the Obamacare exchanges, said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Officials said the latest figures also proved a growing momentum for the Obamacare. The federal-run on-line exchange has gone through a rocky start since its debut last October. The enrollment figures began to rebound since last December after the administration worked around the clock to fix the glitches-plagued website.
