WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will release the first round of health insurance enrollment numbers Wednesday afternoon.

Officials have been lowering expectations for the numbers, given the widespread technical issues with the sign-up website. The tightly held numbers are believed to amount to only a small fraction of the nearly 500,000 initial sign-ups that administration officials had projected before the healthcare.gov site went live on Oct. 1.

The numbers are expected to cover sign-ups that occurred in October, the first month of the six-month enrollment window. Officials say they expect enrollment to be heavier toward the end of that period.
