ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state’s new health exchange reports more than 995,000 New Yorkers have completed applications for insurance while more than 666,000 of them have now enrolled for specific coverage.

The health department says enrollment for individual and family coverage since October includes 327,020 New Yorkers in the 16 commercial and nonprofit insurers in the exchange and 339,377 in government-funded Medicaid.

Open enrollments continue through March for 2014 coverage at state-approved rates. Applicants with incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line are eligible for tax credits to help offset premium payments.

Another online exchange offers insurance for businesses with up to 50 employees.
