More than 471K Pennsylvanians signed up for 2015 health coverage through marketplace, feds say


HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Federal officials say that more than 471,000 Pennsylvanians enrolled or re-enrolled in insurance plans sold through the marketplace created by the 2010 federal health care law.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday that the statistic was through Sunday's deadline for 2015 coverage.

The report didn't distinguish how many enrollees signed up for the first time or how many re-enrolled in a plan after purchasing one during the six-month open enrollment period for last year.

The federal government also hasn't said how many of the approximately 317,000 Pennsylvanians who had signed up for 2014 remain insured. But it did say that about four in five who were signed up through Jan. 30 qualified for an average tax credit of $230 per month to help cover the cost.
