An insurance carrier under Iowa's new health marketplace says at least five persistent residents have signed up for insurance on the government's website.

CoOportunity Health says the people enrolled in the carrier's insurance plans by Wednesday morning. The consumers are from Iowa City, Glidden and Clive.

The marketplaces, also known as exchanges, have been troubled by technical glitches and delays since launching on Oct. 1. Iowa's exchange is available under the federal website.

Cliff Gold, CoOportunity Health's chief operating officer, says he's encouraged that some people are getting through the website. He says nine Nebraska residents have also selected policies via the new system.

The policies go into effect on Jan. 1.
