Nearly 15,000 Oklahomans and nearly 2.2 million people nationwide selected a health plan through the new Health Insurance Marketplaces between Oct. 1 and Dec. 28, according to a report released Monday by the Department of Health and Human Services. An increase from roughly 364,000 before December, the count includes people who have not yet paid their first month’s premium. 

Seventy-two percent of Oklahomans selecting plans qualified for financial assistance, compared to the national average of 79 percent.

Oklahomans have completed 32,908 applications through the Marketplace, representing 51,623 individuals. Of these 44,423 were eligible for enrollment.

In addition, 6,476 Oklahomans submitting applications through the marketplace were deemed eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program, according to the report. 

Nationally, about six in 10 enrollees selected a silver plan, and three in 10 were under age 35.
