LANSING, Michigan — Nearly 341,000 Michigan residents have enrolled or re-enrolled in a health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace during the second open enrollment period.
Erin Knott, Michigan state director of Get Covered America, announced Tuesday that 340,905 residents enrolled between Nov. 15 and Feb. 15. He said more than 546,000 Michigan residents have enrolled for coverage through the state's Medicaid expansion program.
The open enrollment period for the Health Insurance Marketplace ended Sunday. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is allowing people who were unable to complete the process due to an issue with HealthCare.gov or the enrollment hotline to finish enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace through Saturday.
The special enrollment period will allow currently uninsured Michigan residents to select a plan that will begin on March 1.
