Dakotans Lag In Insurance Marketplace Enrollment

Dakotans Lag In Insurance Marketplace Enrollment
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Less than 50 percent of people living in North and South Dakota eligible to sign up for health care coverage under the nation's new marketplace have selected a plan.

In North Dakota, where 10,394 people are eligible to pick a plan, slightly more than 5,200 have done so during the marketplace's first five months.

The percentage of enrollees is even smaller in South Dakota. A federal report released Tuesday shows that nearly 7,000 people of the more than 16,000 who qualify have selected a plan.

North and South Dakota are two of 36 states relying on the federal HealthCare.gov website to sign people up for insurance. Technical problems with the website have kept many people from signing up.

But time is running out. The open enrollment period ends March 31.
