The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has released the much-anticipated numbers for the first month of enrollment in the ACA’s insurance marketplaces.

A quick breakdown from the press release:

  • 975,407 customers have gone through the process but have not yet selected a plan
  • 106,185 Americans selected health plans
  • 396,261 assessed or determined eligible for Medicaid or CHIP

The 28-page issue brief (PDF) from HHS has plenty of other numbers, including those for individual states and draws comparisons between the healthcare.gov rollout and the launch of other programs, including the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, Medicare Part D, Massachusetts’ Commonwealth Care, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
