ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s health exchange reports more than 225,000 people have newly enrolled for coverage starting next year.

The Health Department says that total includes 83,057 people covered by private insurers and 142,187 by Medicaid.

In the first year of the exchange, New York enrolled 370,604 people with commercial and nonprofit insurers.

Another 525,283 enrolled in Medicaid and 64,875 in the state’s Child Health Plus coverage.

New York’s month-long open enrollment for coverage starting Jan. 1 was extended by five days after snowstorms left some areas without electricity for days.
