Healthcare Enrollment Numbers Low In Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- New data from the Obama administration shows that just 136 Iowa residents have successfully enrolled in health insurance plans using the troubled federal website.
   Information released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that in Iowa, about 5,500 insurance applications have been completed on the website, for insurance to cover nearly 11,000 people. But only 136 were able to fully complete the process and sign up for private insurance.
   The applications were made on the website between Oct. 1 and Nov. 2.
   From those applications, about 2,100 individuals have been deemed eligible for financial assistance to pay for insurance and 4,500 will be eligible for low-income health programs like Medicaid.
   An estimated 300,000 Iowa residents lack health insurance.
