CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - More than 33,000 West Virginia residents have signed up for coverage through the federal health care law.

Federal officials said this week that 33,407 West Virginians signed up or renewed coverage on the federal marketplace from Nov. 1 through Dec. 19. Nationally, more than 8.2 million people have enrolled in the 38 states that use the HealthCare.gov website and call center.

Residents have until Jan. 31 to sign up for coverage. People who remain uninsured after that risk rising fines.
