More South Dakotans Sign Up For Obamacare

More South Dakotans Sign Up For Obamacare

A final push to get more South Dakotans enrolled in the federal government's Health Insurance Marketplace apparently paid off.

More than 13, 100 South Dakotans have joined the 8-million nationwide who have selected a Marketplace plan through the healthcare.gov website. The Department of Health & Human Services also reports that another 210 South Dakotans have been added to the state's Medicaid and CHIP programs, despite the fact that South Dakota governor Dennis Daugaard opted not to ask state legislators to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Of the state residents who have selected a Marketplace plan since the open enrollment period began October 1st, 54 percent are women and 46 percent are men. More than a third of the new enrollees are under the age of 35, and nearly three-quarters selected a mid-tier Silver plan for their health insurance coverage.

You can read full Marketplace Enrollment report and the full Medicaid Enrollment report online.
