The numbers found in the report are well below the original estimates made by the Obama Administration. A total of 1,509,883 have completed applications through the exchanges which is 22% of the estimated 7,000,000 who will enroll by 2014 according to the Congressional Budget Office.

On October 2nd, I received an e-mail  confirmation from Health and Human Services (see screenshot below) that my account had been created. On October 14, I was able to see what the entire exchanges look like. I have seen plans on the federal health insurance marketplace but I have not selected one as of yet as I am waiting to see if my carrier will cancel the plan that I have had since 2008.  So far, they have not and I have been told that they will not cancel it.
