New federal numbers show 70,000 more Michiganders signed up for health insurance through Obamacare this year compared to last year. 

Roughly 88% of the 341,000 are getting a federal subsidy. But the U.S. Supreme Court will decide soon if those subsidies are legal.  

“It could be a real hardship for folks that are now banking on those subsidies to help drive down the cost,” says Erin Knott, state director for Enroll America.

Next week, a special limited Obamacare enrollment period will begin for people who face a federal tax penalty for not having health insurance.
