Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says the state will reach a 260,000-person enrollment goal by the end of March through the state's health care exchange.

Governor O'Malley issued an update on how the state is addressing challenges faced getting members enrolled, following a period of computer glitches which slowed the web site.

O'Malley insists that while Maryland has had a tough start, he's hopeful the state will make up ground in the coming months. The state hopes to get about 147,000 people enrolled in qualified health plans and another 110,000 people enrolled through Medicaid.

So far, about 21,000 members have enrolled, about 5,200 through health plans and the rest through Medicaid.
