AP count: Nearly 11.8M enroll for Obama health law in 2018

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly 11.8 million Americans have signed up for coverage this year under former President Barack Obama's health care law, about 3 percent less than last year. That's according to a new tally by The Associated Press.

Enrollment remained remarkably stable despite President Donald Trump's disdain for "Obamacare." The Republican-led Congress repeatedly tried to repeal the program, while the administration cut the sign-up window in half and took actions that raised premiums.

The Affordable Care Act offers subsidized private health insurance to people who don't have coverage on the job, through HealthCare.gov and state-run insurance markets.

AP's count shows that states running their own marketplaces mostly outperformed the federal HealthCare.gov.

But California's state-run market, which reported total sign-ups of more than 1.5 million on Wednesday, saw a slight dip.
