HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvanians who are seeking health insurance through the federally run exchange are bumping up against a deadline if they want coverage by Jan. 1.

If they miss Monday’s deadline, they can still enroll through the exchange through Feb. 15.

New enrollment figures in Pennsylvania aren’t available through the federal government. Non-profit health care advocates are active trying to help people sign up and say they’re strengthening their focus on harder-to-reach populations, including those in more rural areas and immigrants.

More than 317,000 Pennsylvanians signed up for coverage through a policy sold on the exchange during the first enrollment period from October 2013 through March.

That’s according to the federal government. It hasn’t said how many Pennsylvanians remain on an insurance plan sold on the exchange.
