Officials at HealthCare.gov say business is picking up.
The enrollment system website recorded 895,000 visits Tuesday, and the HHS exchange call center received about 197,000 calls Monday and 200,000 calls Tuesday, officials reported today.
The call center is busier than it’s been since December, officials said.
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act exchange plan enrollment activity soared in December, as well-publicized enrollment deadlines for coverage starting Jan. 1 approached and passed.
Activity then fell in January, and again in February.
Open enrollment ends March 31.
Exchange critics have wondered whether the exchanges would really get a March enrollment surge, or whether the exchanges’ 15 minutes of fame had come and gone.
