Sebelius: No Reliable Obamacare Enrollment Data

Numbers have not yet been released because technical problems are preventing reliable data.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday that enrollment numbers through are not available, Talking Points Memo reports.

"We have no reliable data about enrollment, which is why we haven't given it to date," Sebelius said at the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing. 


At the committee's hearing on Tuesday, members repeatedly asked Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner to provide enrollment numbers. Each time, she answered, "We will have that information in mid-November."

The administration has declined to give numbers on how many people have fully enrolled in coverage, and it was previously unclear whether that information was unavailable, or was just too low a number to share.

The administration has released data on the number of applications submitted, an earlier step in the enrollment process. The most recent estimate was 700,000 applications.
