Obamacare: 476,000 applications filed, no word on actual enrollment

WASHINGTON (AP) - Obama administration officials say about 476,000 health insurance applications have been filed through new "Obamacare" exchanges.

That's the most detailed measure yet of the problem-plagued rollout of President Barack Obama's signature legislation.

However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets.

Without enrollment figures, it's unclear whether the program is on track to reach the 7 million people projected by the Congressional Budget Office to gain coverage during the six-month sign-up period.

The officials did not want to be cited by name and would not discuss the health insurance rollout unless they were granted anonymity.
