Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- President Obama and the Department of Health and Human Services have both recently confirmed that more than 4 million people have signed up for ObamaCare via the Healthcare.gov web site and their toll-free numbers. The government, however, is pushing for at least 7 million in total to sign up for coverage before the end of March.
Obama commented, "If they want health insurance now, they need to sign up now, and we're going to make a big push these last few weeks. We've only got a few weeks left. March 31st, that's the last call." He also explained that anyone not signed up by that date will have to wait until open enrollment begins anew in the fall.
Creators of the Affordable Health Insurance Network, known for their resourceful web site at AffordableHealthInsurance.org, released a statement saying that they are very confident that the goal can be reached by the deadline. They also emphasized, as did Obama, that in addition to the 4 million already enrolled, millions more are benefiting from the health care law's expansion of Medicaid and its provision which allows young people up to age 26 to remain covered by their parents' insurance.
