Friday marks the last day Hoosiers can sign up for health insurance coverage in the Affordable Care Act’s Marketplace.

A flux of people enrolled when the open enrollment started Nov. 1 despite a cut in promotional material.

The enrollment period was shorter this year as President Donald Trump scaled back parts of the Obama-era federal law. Still, early numbers show about 79,000 Hoosiers had picked a plan on the healthcare.gov website through last week. That’s compared to about 71,000 at the same time last year.

This year’s open enrollment has also been marked with confusion amid a federal push in Congress to repeal and replace the law.
