LANSING, Michigan — The federal government says 341,183 Michigan residents have enrolled for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace under a provision of the Affordable Care Act.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced the new enrollment figures Tuesday.

It says the figures are through Feb. 22. It says 88 percent of those enrolled qualified for a tax credit, and the credits averaged $236 per month.

The report says 48 percent of Michiganians in the program paid $100 or less per month after tax credits.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering a challenge to the subsidies in Michigan and other states where residents depend on the federal health exchange, rather than state-established exchanges. The court's decision is expected in late June.
