Nearly 6.8 million individuals and families selected a health plan (or were automatically re-enrolled) through the federally-facilitated Health Insurance Marketplace between Nov. 15 and Jan. 9, according to preliminary data released yesterday by the Department of Health and Human Services. About 163,000 people signed up last week. The HHS update includes an estimate of plan selections for each state in the FFM. Open enrollment in the Marketplace runs through Feb. 15.
