A new federal report says 1,400 Arkansas residents have enrolled in health coverage through the HealthCare.gov website that's in place to facilitate insurance sign-ups as part of the government's health care overhaul.

The Wednesday report says nearly 18,000 Arkansans completed applications through the new marketplace. When adding in family members who would be covered, the applications totaled about 34,600 people.

The numbers are from activity on the website from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30.

Arkansas Insurance Department spokeswoman Heather Haywood says 250 state residents had enrolled as of Oct. 30 and says the new numbers show the pace is picking up now that the government website is running more efficiently.

The department estimates that 211,000 Arkansans will ultimately sign up for health coverage under the new program.
