Just more than 7 million people signed up for private insurance through the online marketplace, and that rush of applicants was felt right here in central Wisconsin.
Security Health Plan in Marshfield say they had more than 25,000 applicants as of mid-day Monday. But just a few hours past the midnight deadline, they saw that number jump by nearly 2,000.
The Director of Marketing says these numbers fall within the company's expectations. They expect even more enrollments through April, as many applicants received an extension.
