Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - About 145,000 Michigan residents have selected private insurance plans under the federal health care law.

Updated figures released Tuesday by the Health and Human Services Department show about 314,000 people in the state have completed an application and are eligible to enroll in a marketplace plan.

April 1 is the deadline to enroll before fines can be imposed.

President Barack Obama's administration says 4.2 million people have signed up nationally.

About 112,000 Michigan residents had signed up between Oct. 1 and the end of January.

The new numbers show 55 percent of those enrolled are women. The age group with the largest enrollment is 55 to 64 with 32 percent.

About 87 percent enrolled with a plan and are eligible to receive financial assistance.
