CONCORD, New Hampshire — One month after the launch of the Affordable Care Act, 269 people in New Hampshire selected a health plan.
Figures released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show that New Hampshire had just over 4,000 complete applications representing 7,817 people.
The data is from Oct. 1 to Nov. 2.
Of the 7,817 people who successfully completed an application, almost all — 7,783 — were determined to be eligible to enroll in a marketplace plan.
There are an estimated 150,000 uninsured people in New Hampshire.
The launch of the overhaul has been sharply criticized because of problems with the website and a number of cancellation notices to people whose current plans don't meet federal requirements.
Nationally, slightly more than 106,000 people selected plans as of Nov. 2.
