JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – The number of Missouri residents using a federal website to enroll in health insurance is growing, but not as fast as had been projected.

Figures released Tuesday show nearly 75,000 people had enrolled in health policies by March 1. That’s up by more than one-third from the Feb. 1.

Yet Missouri remains behind the enrollment targets originally set for federal health care law. The March 1 number is about where Missouri was expected to be on Feb. 1.

Missouri was projected to enroll 118,000 people by March 31.

Missouri is one of 36 states where the online insurance marketplace is being run by the federal government.

Health care advocates intensified their efforts over this past weekend to persuade people to sign up for the insurance policies.
