13 Percent of Eligible Arkansans Have Signed up for Healthcare Plans

More than 300-thousand people have yet to signup.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - New numbers are in on healthcare enrollment in Arkansas.

Data gathered by the Arkansas Health Connector shows about 33-thousand Arkansans have signed up for federally-facilitated coverage. About 250-thousand people are eligible for the insurance. 

That means the registration rate is roughly 13 percent.

Meanwhile, more than 100-thousand people have signed up for Arkansas' other healthcare option -- the Private Option. 

Lawmakers meeting in Little Rock Thursday are expected to discuss how to reach the more than 300-thousand people who still need to sign up.
