370,000 Kentuckians sign up for health insurance



FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — More than 370,000 Kentuckians have signed up for health insurance through the state's health insurance marketplace.

The deadline to sign up for insurance was Monday. Kentucky officials said more than 21,000 people signed up in the final three days. More than half of those enrollments came on Monday.

Of the 370,829 who signed up for health insurance, 293,802 enrolled for the state's Medicaid program and 77,027 purchased discounted private insurance plans.

Those numbers are likely to grow. People who had problems signing up for coverage have until midnight April 11 to enroll. Final enrollment numbers will be available after April 15.
