Health exchange enrollments reach 3 million

The Hill reports that enrollments in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance exchanges have reached 3 million part way through January.
About 3 million people have selected a healthcare plan under ObamaCare, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced at an event in Jacksonville, Fla., on Friday.

HHS confirmed to The Hill that about 800,000 people have enrolled so far in January, on top of the 2.2 million who selected plans from October through December.
The news was a surprise because January and February were expected to be slow enrollment months.

The news follows yesterday's findings by Gallup that health insurance rates among adults had jumped in January.
