That includes renewals and new sign-ups. Aimee Crocker, operations manager for Enroll Alaska, says most of those enrolled by the broker this period have been renewals.

Overall enrollment figures aren’t yet available. Alaskans also can sign up themselves.

Monday marked the deadline for individuals to sign up for coverage beginning Jan. 1. People have until Feb. 15 to sign up for 2015 coverage through the federally run online marketplace.

Crocker says unlocking accounts for renewal clients has been frustrating.

She says website passwords were reset in April and some individuals have had to get temporary passwords or find documentation with their identification number.
