(HealthNewsDigest.com) - As we continue our open enrollment campaign, we experienced a welcome surge in enrollment as millions of Americans seek access to affordable health care coverage through new Health Insurance Marketplaces nationwide.

More than 1.1 million people enrolled in a qualified health plan via the Federally-facilitated Marketplace from October 1 to December 24, with more than 975,000 of those enrolling this month alone.  Our HealthCare.gov enrollment nearly doubled in the days before theJanuary 1 coverage deadline compared to the first few weeks of the month.  December enrollment so far is over 7 times that of October and November.  In part, this was because we met our marks on improving HealthCare.gov: the site supported 83,000 concurrent users on December 23rd alone.

We are in the middle of a sustained, six-month open enrollment period that we expect to see enrollment ramp up over time, much like other historic implementation efforts we've seen in Massachusetts and Medicare Part D.

We are eager to assist millions more Americans gain the health security offered by the Affordable Care Act in the weeks and months ahead.
