    Federal officials say roughly 216,350 Virginians picked health plans in the new insurance marketplace created by President Barack Obama's health care law.

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the final enrollment figures on Thursday.

    The federal data shows that many Virginia residents who have obtained coverage are older, though about 39 percent are under age 35. More than half are women, and 82 percent are getting financial help to pay their monthly premiums.
