15k Iowans Signed Up Under Obamacare

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A new report says more than 15,000 Iowans have signed up for private health insurance plans using the federal enrollment website.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says Tuesday that in the first five months of enrollment under the health care law, 15,346 people in Iowa signed up for private health insurance between Oct. 1 and March 1.

That is a 30 percent increase in the total number of people who have selected an insurance plan during February, similar to the national trend of 29 percent.

Nationally, about 4.2 million people have enrolled in plans using the federal website.

Thirty-five percent of the Iowa enrollees are between the ages of 55 and 64, compared with 24 percent who were between 18 and 34.
