A retooled, multi-million-dollar marketing effort by the state’s health care exchange to persuade more of the state’s Latino residents to obtain insurance under the nation’s health care law is showing mixed results, according to enrollment data released Thursday.

This year’s first demographic breakdown of enrollment numbers, released by Covered California, showed that of the 228,766 Californians who selected a 2015 health care plan in the first 60 days of open enrollment — from Nov. 15 through Jan. 12 — 28 percent are Latino.
