Kansans who enrolled for health coverage at HealthCare.gov through March 1 received more than $45 million total in subsidies from the government, according to a study released by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit foundation that focuses on health issues.
About 23,000 of the 29,000 who enrolled in Kansas qualified for subsidies to help them pay for coverage.
The average subsidy was $1,970 a year, according to the study.
Nationally, the study estimates about 3.5 million people have qualified for more than $10 billion in subsidies.
Enrollment at HealthCare.gov ends Monday. The next open enrollment period begins on November 15.
