WASHINGTON — The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under the federal health-care law has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to about 3 million, according to government data released yesterday.

Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health-insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public-outreach campaign accelerates.

The data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama’s administration has turned the corner on enrollment since a botched Oct. 1 launch. It also shows that officials might still reach their initial goal of signing up 7 million people for coverage before the current enrollment period ends on March 31.

The latest tally is close to the 3.3 million mark that the administration originally expected by Jan. 1 and reflects a January gain of about 800,000 enrollees, or 36 percent, from the 2.2 million total reported this month for the period of Oct. 1 through Dec. 28.
