MILWAUKEE (AP) - Nearly half of the Wisconsin and West Virginia residents who signed up for health insurance through the new online exchanges are between the ages of 55 and 64, tying for the highest rate in the nation and raising the possibility that the two states could see higher insurance rates down the line. Figures released by the federal government Monday show that 45 percent of enrollees in those two states were between the ages of 55 and 64. By comparison, the next-highest rate was 21 percent of enrollees in each state between the ages of 45 to 54.
