For Obama­care, the dis­tance between suc­cess and fail­ure is as short as a step across state lines.

Two months be­fore the close of the Obama­care open-en­roll­ment peri­od, ex­changes in some states are pick­ing up high por­tions of eli­gible mem­bers, ac­cord­ing to new ana­lys­is by the non­par­tis­an Kais­er Fam­ily Found­a­tion. But else­where, the ex­changes are flail­ing.

The found­a­tion found that 7.8 per­cent of the mar­ket­place-eli­gible pop­u­la­tion in the U.S. have en­rolled in cov­er­age thus far. Thirty-three states have en­rolled a lower per­cent­age than na­tion­ally, while 17 plus D.C. have en­rolled a high­er per­cent­age.
