And there’s more good news behind these stories.  Access Health CT released some demographic details about those who have signed up for insurance and the numbers point to early success for the ACA  here.   Just over one quarter of those enrolled in private insurance through the marketplace is under age 34, and about 30 percent of those who enrolled don’t qualify for any subsidy at all – indicating that even without help paying for the premiums they are finding coverage that works within their budgets.
