Sign-ups pick up in week five of 2018 Obamacare open enrollment

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said roughly 823,000 people selected a plan on HealthCare.gov between November 26 and December 2.

In week 4 of open enrollment, 504,181 people signed up for coverage, including 152,243 new enrollees. "We need to do everything we can to make sure people know that the last chance for people to enroll for health coverage with financial help at HealthCare.gov is December 15".

Stock Jumping Abnormally High: Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc. (CRZO)
MUR's return on equity of 0.70% is worse than the Independent Oil & Gas industry average. (NASDAQ: CRZO ) for 162,000 shares. Bedell Frazier Investment Counseling Llc owns 337,360 shares or 2.14% of their United States portfolio. (NASDAQ:EA).

More people have signed up for health coverage at HealthCare.gov this year than ever before - almost 3.6 million nationally. But because open enrollment is only half as long as it was last year, the number of total people who sign up could fall short of previous years. That means insurance enrollment through the state exchange, where individuals and small businesses shop for plans, is up almost 30 percent in the first month of the annual open enrollment period compared to the same period previous year.

But if the final enrollment numbers are significantly lower than in the past, which many analysts expect, it could bolster the GOP's argument that ObamaCare is failing and needs to be repealed. Visit connectforhealthco.com to review options and apply for assistance.
