ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota's health insurance exchange has revealed demographic details about the nearly 72,000 people who signed up for coverage, showing that 53 percent of them are women and the median age is 48.

The board of directors for MNsure meets Wednesday. The agency released enrollment figures good through last Sunday, which flesh out a last-minute enrollment as coverage started Jan. 1 under the federal health care law.

MNsure says 71,982 people have an enrollment in process. Nearly 116,000 have opened accounts, but open enrollment extends through March.

MNsure is facing criticism for the glitch-plagued rollout of its website, which bedeviled many users leading up to Jan. 1. At Wednesday's meeting, interim CEO Scott Leitz is scheduled to discuss details of an independent review of the problems by a UnitedHealth Group division.
