Just 701 Indiana residents chose a health insurance plan through the federally run online exchange during its glitch-plagued first month of operation.
In Indiana, figures also showed that the insurance exchange had nearly 16,000 completed applications from Indiana from Oct. 1 to Nov. 2.
More than 500,000 are believed to be eligible for coverage.
The HHS figures did not indicate how many Indiana residents selecting a health plan have started paying premiums.
More than 11,300 people have been found to be eligible for Medicaid, the state-federal health plan for needy people.
