Insurance exchange sign-ups break 100K mark in Pa.


HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — More than 123,000 Pennsylvanians have selected an insurance plan under the new federal health care law as troubles with the gateway website have subsided.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a report Wednesday with the figures for all states through Jan. 31.

The federally run online insurance marketplace is accessible to Pennsylvanians through the Healthcare.gov website, and people with low- to-moderate income are eligible for federal tax credits to subsidize the cost of the health insurance. About three out of four qualified for a tax credit.

However, federal officials are unable to say how many of those who signed up were previously uninsured. Besides people who picked a plan, nearly 287,000 Pennsylvanians were found to be eligible for coverage through a plan sold in the marketplace.
