Over 10 million people enrolled in Medicaid and the children's health insurance program since Obamacare's launch a year and a half ago, the administration announced. The numbers show that through the end of December 2014, 10.75 million more people are enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP compared to before Obamacare's coverage expansion took effect in 2013, about a 19% increase. In states that expanded Medicaid, enrollment is up 27% compared to 2013, the administration said. By contrast, in states that have not, enrollment is up 7%.
