Health care policy researchers said Friday that enrollment in the private health marketplaces jumped in November, the Washington Post reports.

The researchers with the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation for the research of health care policy, said that new data on enrollment in the 14 state-run marketplaces alone brought the new total to 200,000. The new figures do not include any additional enrollments in the federal marketplaces in November.

The federal government previously said that 106,000 people signed up in October total, or less than 2% of the 7 million Americans federal officials expect to enroll.
