74,000-Plus Have Signed up for Health Care in Va.

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - More than 74,000 Virginians have enrolled in health plans through the federal insurance marketplace.

Figures from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show that from Oct. 1 through Feb. 1, 28 percent of those in Virginia who selected marketplace plans were ages 18 to 34.

Sixteen percent were ages 35 to 44; 21 percent were ages 45 to 54, and 27 percent were ages 55 to 64.

Under President Barack Obama's signature health care law, the federal government operates the electronic system for Virginia and 35 other states.

The enrollment period remains open through March 31.
