TOPEKA, Kansas — Federal health officials say more than 96,000 consumers have signed up for health insurance coverage in Kansas through the federal marketplace created under the Affordable Care Act.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services announced Wednesday that 96,226 Kansas consumers either selected a plan or were automatically reenrolled in coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Nationally, HHS says about 11.4 million Americans selected plans or were automatically reenrolled.

The second year of open enrollment ended Sunday.

Of Kansas residents who either selected a plan or were automatically reenrolled, nearly 86,000 were in the Kansas City area.

The agency also reported that 80 percent of Kansas consumers who signed up by the end of January qualify for an average tax credit of $214 per month.
