NY health exchange extends signups through Tuesday

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York's health exchange has extended the sign-up deadline for insurance coverage starting Jan. 1 by a day, giving applicants until shortly before midnight Tuesday.

The exchange reports that by Monday morning, 421,949 people have completed applications for individual or family coverage while 188,546 of them have enrolled in a plan.

They include 136,783 with a commercial or nonprofit insurer and 51,763 in government-funded Medicaid.

Both numbers showed jumps over the past week as the deadline approached, with almost 60,000 more completed applications and 53,000 new enrollments.

Open enrollments for coverage starting later next year are scheduled to continue through March 31.

The state, with about 2.7 million uninsured, has projected enrolling 1.1 million New Yorkers through the exchange and adding about 500,000 to Medicaid over the next three years.
