The number of Montanans to sign up for insurance on the federal exchange is going up.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday released enrollment figures through Nov. 30, showing about 137,000 people had completed the full process to get coverage across the 36 states using the federal website.

In Montana, 1,382 had selected a marketplace plan.

Problems continued to plague the website last month.

Federal officials say they expect the pace of enrollments to pick up around the country because many of the computer glitches were repaired within recent weeks.

More than 13,000 people in Montana have applied for coverage, and 9,600 of those were deemed eligible for a marketplace plan. And about half of those were legible for federal subsidies to buy the private insurance.
