The White House today released state estimates for health insurance coverage bought in the exchanges set up under Obamacare.

An Oklahoma family of four with a household income of $50,000 would pay $282 a month for a mid-range plan once federal subsidies are counted. A 27-year-old with an income of $25,000 would pay $84 a month for a low-cost plan once subsidies are counted.

UPDATE: Here is the full report from the Department of Health and Human Services, which includes numbers for Oklahoma and 35 other states that will have federal exchanges.
