Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear says more than 413,410 people have signed up for health insurance through Kentucky's marketplace in the first enrollment period that ended March 31.

Beshear announced the numbers Tuesday and said 330,615 people qualified for Medicaid coverage. The Democrat also noted that 52 percent of the enrollees through kynect were under the age of 35.

Beshear's office said about 75 percent of the people signing up for health insurance in Kentucky did not have health insurance prior to signing up.

Beshear described it as "deeply satisfying" that 10 percent of the state's population now has health insurance through the program.

The next open enrollment period opens on Nov. 15, with coverage starting in January.
