A higher rate of young adults and uninsured people are signing up for coverage through a private insurance website as next week's enrollment deadline approaches, according to information released by the company Tuesday.

The enrollment data, issued by e Health Insurance, provides a snapshot of how some customers are shopping for insurance away from Obamacare exchanges during the law’s first enrollment period.

Americans are not required to maintain health insurance so about one in ten people goes without coverage for a period of more than six months.

Gaps in coverage are triggered by changing jobs, layoffs, leaving parents' coverage, graduation from college, relocation, immigration, or starting a business.

It also didn’t an offer an explanation for why it’s enrolling young adults at a higher rate than Obamacare exchanges, but it could show that youth enrollment may be ticking up in public exchanges this month.

The rate of e Health customers who identified themselves as previously uninsured has also increased since the first three months of the enrollment, the company says.

In addition, many of the lowest priced health insurance plans restricts eligibility to exclude those with significant pre-existing medical conditions.

Federal law ensures that takeover coverage is available to those who do not have a significant gap in health insurance.

However, shoppers on e Health's website can’t access federal subsidies to help purchase insurance, though the company says it has helped people enroll in subsidy-eligible plans by telephone. 1, about 45 percent of those picking new health plans through e Health were between 18 and 34 years old, the company says.
