Late last week, the latest numbers for Michigan were released for the Affordable Care Act’s first open enrollment period, which ended on March 31st. It turns out more than 272,000 people signed up for one of the plans available on the healthcare.gov website. Of those, 29 percent were from the coveted 18-34 age group and 87 percent were eligible for financial assistance.
Erin Knott, state director for Enroll America here in Michigan, tells Current State that she's thrilled by the numbers in the state. They continue to talk with consumers around Michigan because the next open enrollment period begins November 15.
