Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - The latest healthcare numbers are out and more people in Michigan are signing up for health insurance.

About 36,000 people picked a federal health care plan last month.

That brings the total number in the state to 112,000 thousand, which is above the 100,000 projected to sign up by the end of the month.

More than 85 percent of those who have signed up qualify for tax credits, to help pay for a portion of their premium.

About one million people across the country signed up for healthcare in January.
