CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The number of New Hampshire residents selecting a health plan through the new federal health insurance market increased significantly in December compared to the first two months of open enrollment.

Figures released Monday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services show 11,446 people had selected a plan by Dec. 28, more than seven times the total a month earlier. The total nationally was nearly 2.2 million.

As was the case nationally, more women selected plans than men in New Hampshire. At 38 percent, adults between 55 and 64 made up the largest age group. About a quarter were between 18 and 34. Of the total so far, nearly three-quarters have gotten financial help.
