A total of 1,662 North Carolinians have signed up for a health plan in the federal marketplace.

That's according to numbers released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Of the 30 states that have signed up individuals, North Carolina has the fourth most, behind Florida (3,571), Texas (2,991) and Pennsylvania (2,207). 

In total,  about 27,000  people have signed up for the federal plans, though roughly 80,000 have signed up through exchanges offered by their states.

The numbers are about one-fifth of what the administration was expecting to this point.
