Louisiana enrollment has reached 137,142 residents under Obamacare.
The figures include those who have enrolled or were automatically re-enrolled for 2015 in the online federal marketplace for health insurance as of Jan. 16, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
A year ago, roughly 102,000 Louisiana consumers found 2014 coverage through the federal marketplace under the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. Officials had expected enrollment this year to exceed last year.
Open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act ends Feb. 15. Information on options and financial help can be found online at HealthCare.gov.
Nationwide, nearly 7.2 million consumers have picked plans through the marketplace.
