State Obamacare enrollment up 2,000

Nearly 2,000 more Mississippians have signed up for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act this year compared to the same period last year, according to data released last week by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Since open enrollment began Nov. 1, some 18,500 Mississippians have signed up, the federal agency said. In the same time period last year, only 16,515 Mississippians had enrolled, an increase of nearly 2,000 customers.
