    has a higher enrollment target than New York. They just assigned the state targets for the one's with public targets and then did some back of the envelope magic to create the rest of the targets.

    In general, the enrollment targets provided by state-based Marketplaces are more ambitious than the initial Department enrollment targets for those specific states. As a result, using the publicly available SBM targets without adjusting other states would have raised the projected number of 2014 Marketplace enrollees by 1.4 million; therefore, the Marketplace ramp-up rates for other states were revised downward accordingly to maintain the 7 million total.
    Oh geez. These aren't real targets at all and the media has been running with these numbers as if they were some real target. I bet some poor intern was told to make some first order estimation of the distribution based on the CBO estimate.
