I'm taking over this diary series at Kossack brainwrap's request, because he has to get back to his paying clients, as he explained on Monday. I welcome any assistance any of you may be able to offer. Brainwrap started the ACA Signups diaries to report what he was able to put together from all available sources, which he put into a spreadsheet and a graph at his ACA Signups Web site.

This Diary is mainly to let you know that this is happening. I'll get into the substance tomorrow, and try to catch up on the last three days while looking forward to the end of Open Enrollment and beyond.

Why, you might want to know, did brainwrap pick me?

I made the offer. Simple as that. I can grab the daily updates and media links, post any new numbers, and add a bit of commentary if I find anything else of interest going on. Let me know what else you want to see.

Numbers! I'm in withdrawal! I demand numbers!

The numbers are available every day at ACA Signups, along with brainwrap's updates as new numbers come in. Here is the summary from today. I will get into the updates for the last several days first thing tomorrow.

Private QHPs (5.35M - 6.56M)  •  Medicaid/CHIP (4.62M - 6.40M)  •  Sub26ers (2.50M - 3.10M)

Grand Total as of March 26, 2014: (12.4 M - 16.0 M)

Enrollment Period Elapsed: 96.7%  •  Est. % of CBO QHP Projection: 84.9% (or 99.0%)

Exchange-Based QHP Projection, 10/1/13 - 3/31/14: 6.52M

(OFF-Exchange QHPs are at least 558K, more likely 4M or more nationally)

What have they been saying about brainwrap?

03/26/14: Krugman at The New York Times: Data as Slogan, Data as Substance

Paul Krugman says that Nate Silver is doing it all wrong at the newly relaunched, and our brainwrap is showing the right way to go about data-driven reporting.

03/25/14: Salon: Republicans losing it over new Obamacare data: Why their position is collapsing

Obamacare enrollment could hit 7 million before the midterms; meanwhile, GOP still has no answer for beneficiaries
03/24/14: The New Republic: The Obamacare Enrollment Deadline Is a Week Away, but There’s Little Mention of the Mandate

Oh, the mandate. You know that will be on your tax forms, don't you? And if you don't know, it will be there anyway.

See you tomorrow.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
