PHOENIX (AP) - Federal officials say less than 750 Arizona residents have signed up for insurance in the first month of the online marketplace that is a key part of the nation's new health-care law.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday released state-by-state numbers of people who enrolled through the new exchanges between Oct. 1 and Nov 2.

More than 17,000 Arizonans applied for a health plan through the exchange. They sought coverage for nearly 33,000 people - including themselves, spouses and children.

The insurance marketplaces are a key component of President Barack Obama's health care law, which requires almost all Americans to have health coverage starting next year.
