Nearly 55,000 people have signed up for health insurance through Kentucky's state health insurance marketplace, according to the latest figures from the federal government.

Through March 1, 54,945 people have selected a health plan through Kynect, the state-run health insurance marketplace for people who do not have health insurance through their employer.

The federal government originally estimated Kentucky would have signed up 122,000 by now. But various technical problems have caused many states to lower those projections.

Just over half of Kentucky's 55,000 enrollees were women. And about 70 percent of the state's enrollees were eligible for other government assistance.

The state was unable to report numbers for two weeks in November, so the true percentage could be lower or higher.
