CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — New data show that 85 Wyoming residents have registered for private insurance through the federal government’s health insurance exchange.

A report released Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states that the federal exchange received just over 1,350 completed applications between Oct. 1 and Nov. 2. Those applications represented over 2,650 individuals.

Wyoming is one of 36 states relying on the federally run exchange at www.healthcare.gov. Problems with that website have prevented many people from completing applications or even registering in some cases.

Only two private insurance companies are offering federally approved health insurance through the exchange: WINhealth and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming. Officials from both companies say they’re seeing improvements in the federal exchange lately.
