The Department of Health and Human Services has admitted that it made a mistake in counting the total enrollment under the Affordable Care Act by 380,000…because it counted dental plans as medical plans.  This allowed them to hit the “magic number” extolled by the administration of 7 million enrollees, thus hitting their target and claiming enrollment a success.  Secretary Burwell apologized, saying “this mistake was unacceptable (but) the fact that we have quickly corrected the numbers should give people confidence”
