(INDIANAPOLIS ) - More than 167,000 Indiana residents have signed up for health insurance under the health care law, despite Republican efforts to repeal "Obamacare." That's about 14,400 fewer people than at the same time last year.

Federal figures released Tuesday show a quarter of enrollees live in rural Indiana. More than half are between 45 and 64-years-old, and another 22 percent are 18 to 34-years-old. Sixty-four percent are white.

Seventy-three percent qualify for cost-reducing tax credits of $264 per month, on average.

Enrollment continues on HealthCare.gov through the end of January. Consumers have until Sunday to sign up for coverage starting February 1.

Nationally, 11.5 million people have signed up for marketplace coverage as of December 24. That's 290,000 more than last year at the same time.
