North Carolina: Top 5 for Obamacare Enrollment

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina outstripped all but a handful of states during the first few months of health insurance enrollment established under the federal overhaul law.

A new federal report released Monday showed almost 108,000 people signed up for health insurance in the first three months since the Oct. 1 launch of new marketplaces for private policies.

Only California, New York, Florida and Texas signed up more people than North Carolina. All of those states have larger populations than North Carolina. California and New York run their own health insurance marketplaces, while North Carolina, Florida and Texas opted to leave that task to the federal government.

Only Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina and a subsidiary of Aetna are selling policies on the state's health exchange.
