Just one in four people nationwide who’ve enrolled in health coverage on the new insurance marketplaces have done so through the troubled website – even though the site serves 36 states.

New figures from the Department of Health and Human Services made public Wednesday showed that 106,185 Americans selected health plans through the exchanges from Oct. 1 to Nov. 2. The bulk of those enrollees – nearly 75 percent, or 79,391 people – signed up through state-run websites that serve 14 states and the District of Columbia.
