Navigators see jump ahead of enrollment deadline

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana health advocates and navigators say more residents are seeking coverage through the federal health exchange ahead of a key deadline.

Residents have until the end of the day Tuesday to buy a plan in order to receive coverage starting Jan. 1. The federal open enrollment period continues through March.

Marla Asberry said Monday that she has been seeing the number seeking help from her group grow for past few weeks and expects that interest to keep growing. Asberry works for Open Door Health Services in Muncie.

Figures released by the Department of Health and Human Services earlier this month showed only a small number of Indiana residents had successfully enrolled in new plans. Of the roughly 21,000 residents expected to enroll in October and November, only 3,500 succeeded.
