LITTLE ROCK — More than 43,000 Arkansans have picked health plans on the new insurance markets created by the federal health overhaul.

The federal government said Thursday that 43,446 Arkansas residents signed up between Oct. 1, 2013 and March 31.

Previous enrollment figures found that more than 33,500 residents had already picked out a plan through the exchange, an online marketplace where consumers can compare and shop for policies.

State officials had anticipated 250,000 residents to have signed up.

The new enrollment numbers released Thursday by the Obama administration said about 8 million Americans have picked a plan under the new federal health program.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that about 4.8 million more gained coverage through Medicaid and children's insurance programs.
