PITTSBURGH (AP) - The latest government figures show that more than 81,000 Pennsylvanians have enrolled under the federal health care law, a sharp increase from the 11,800 who were signed up at the end of November.
The Obama administration on Monday released statistical details about the more than 2 million Americans who enrolled for insurance under the Affordable Care Act by the end of December.
In Pennsylvania 56 percent of the people who enrolled were women and 44 percent men. The breakdown by age showed that 39 percent of the people were between 55 and 64 years old, and 24 percent were between 18 and 34.
The government said 76 percent of the people who signed up in Pennsylvania received financial assistance and 24 percent didn't.
