WASHINGTON (AP) - More than 1,800 new people have signed up for new health insurance plans this year through the District of Columbia’s health insurance marketplace.

The health exchange released data about new sign-ups on Tuesday. It says 1,886 people have signed up during the current open enrollment period, which started Nov. 15 and runs through Feb. 15. Last year was the first year for the District’s exchange as the federal health care overhaul took effect. The law provides taxpayer-subsidized private insurance to people who don’t have access to coverage through their jobs.

The new customers add to the 13,100 existing customers who either renewed their insurance plans or changed them from last year.
