Figures show more Montanans Using Federal Healthcare Exchange

Posted: Updated:

As many of you know the roll out of Obamacare did not go exactly as planned, and now new numbers have been released actually showing that the number of Montanans signing up has increased.

The United States Department of Health and Human Services released enrollment figures through November 30th showing about 137,000 people had completed the process to get coverage in the 36 states the web site covers. In Montana 1,382 have selected a marketplace plan, officials are saying they expect the number to increase even more with the recent repairs to the web site within recent months. More than 13,000 Montanans have applied for coverage, 9,600 of those were deemed eligible for a marketplace plan, and half of those were eligible for federal subsidies to buy private insurance.
