Tennessee health exchange sign-ups nearly double in final month
NASHVILLE (AP) — The number of Tennesseans signing up under the federal health insurance exchange nearly doubled in March, the last month of open enrollment for coverage.
According to statistics released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Thursday, more than 151,000 people in Tennessee enrolled through March 31. That’s 28,000 people, or 23 percent, more than originally projected by President Barack Obama’s administration before the signup period began.
About 28 percent of enrollees are younger than 34.
