More New Hampshire Users Getting Through Troubled Health Site

In November, 1,300 New Hampshire residents were able to select insurance plans through HealthCare.gov. That brings the total to 1,569 since the start of enrollment on October 1st.

New data out from the federal government show more than 8,700 people in the state completed applications for health insurance in the new marketplace.

Maine has seen activity similar to New Hampshire.

Vermont, with half the population, reports nearly 5,000 residents selected health plans in the first two months. It is managing its own health exchange.

New Hampshire is partnering with the federal government to run the marketplace, though Washington is responsible for the troubled website.
