Feds: 1,150 Ohioans have enrolled in health plans

Enrollment much lower, nationwide, than expected by Obama administration

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Federal officials say 1,150 Ohio residents successfully picked health insurance plans last month through the new online marketplace created by President Barack Obama's law.
The report released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services includes enrollment figures from Oct. 1 through Nov. 2.
The data shows that more than 24,000 Ohio residents submitted paper or electronic applications for health coverage for more than 45,000 people, such as themselves, their spouses and children.
Ohio opted to let the federal government run its insurance exchange, instead of launching its own. The state is among the 36 states relying on the problem-filled federal website, www.healthcare.gov.
The Obama administration says fewer than 27,000 people managed to sign up for private health insurance last month in states using the site.
