WASHINGTON, DC -
Federal officials say 1,150 Ohio residents successfully picked health insurance plans last month through the new online marketplace created by President Barack Obama's law. The same report shows Kentuckians have completed 50,279 applications during the same period. Of those Kentucky applicants, 28,676 qualify for Medicaid. It also shows that 5,586 people have signed up for traditional insurance coverage. In West Virginia, a total of 3,807 completed applications on health care web site. A little more than half were eligible for a private insurance plan offered through the marketplace.
