MADISON, Wis. (AP) - President Barack Obama’s administration says about 183,700 people were enrolled in health care insurance plans obtained through marketplace exchanges as of June 30.

According to U.S. Department of Health Services data released Tuesday, 183,682 people had coverage. Of those, 164,541, or nearly 90 percent, were receiving tax credits to help offset their premium costs. The average monthly credit was $312.

The majority of Wisconsin enrollees were enrolled in the silver level of coverage, which pays on average 70 percent of a consumer’s costs. The next largest group of enrollees had the bronze level of coverage, which pays on average 60 percent of costs.

DHS reports a total of 9.9 million people were enrolled in plans obtained through the exchanges as of June 30, with nearly 84 percent receiving tax credits.
