3,100 Enroll in Md. Health Marketplace

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — More than 3,100 Maryland households have chosen to enroll through the state’s online marketplace for health insurance.

The Maryland Health Connection released updated numbers relating to enrollment on Friday. That’s more than three weeks after the website first opened and had problems almost immediately. The website’s information technology team continues to work on technical issues with the website.

The state says more than 40,000 people have created accounts for their households.

The state also says about 36 percent of the accounts have been created by people under the age of 35. About 53 percent of the account holders are women.

The state also says 82,473 residents are signed up to be automatically enrolled in Medicaid coverage on Jan. 1.
