North Carolina ranks 5th in Affordable Care Act sign-ups
RALEIGH — New numbers show who is signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
According to stats released by the federal government, North Carolina ranks fifth nationally in sign-ups.
WTVD is reporting that nearly 108,000 people in North Carolina signed up for health coverage through the online marketplace between October and December, which is a huge jump from the initial figures released back in November when only 1,662 North Carolinians had signed on.
Only California, Florida, New York and Texas signed up more people than North Carolina.
Nationwide more than 2.1 million people have enrolled so far.
That number is still a far cry from the 7 million people the Obama administration wants signed up by March 31.
