Obamacare enrollment officially ends today ... but not really.

March 31 was slated to be the final day of enrollment for the opening year of the Affordable Care Act health insurance through the healthcare.gov website. However, because of the number of technical difficulties surrounding the website on its launch and continuing to plague the website right up to the finish, it has been announced that all those who made a profile on the website, or could show that they tried to create a profile, before the deadline, would still be permitted to enroll after the deadline passed.

In this video, Motley Fool health-care analyst David Williamson looks at the Affordable Care Act insurance enrollment numbers and how close they may get to the original estimates, as well as why these numbers represent a great win for one division of UnitedHealth Group ( UNH 0.74% ).

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
