Obamacare enrollment tops 5 million

More than 5 million people have now selected an Obamacare health insurance plan on a government-run exchange, with just two weeks to go before a March 31 deadline for obtaining such coverage, a top federal official announced Monday.

The newly announced tally still leaves the Obama administration about 1 million shy of its revised target of 6 million enrollees by the end of open enrollment in new Affordable Care Act plans that go into effect this year.

"With only two weeks to go, we're continuing to work hard to ensure that every American who wants to enroll in affordable coverage by the deadline of March 31 is able to do so," said Marilyn Tavenner, administrator for the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who revealed the milestone in a blog post.
