ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Officials with the state’s health insurance exchange say nearly 52,000 New Mexicans signed up for coverage before the final open enrollment deadline last weekend.

Exchange CEO Amy Dowd says the goal was to enroll at least 50,000 New Mexicans. She says outreach and enrollment partners, agents and brokers around the state put in countless hours to help those looking to sign up.

Some New Mexicans selected their plans while others were automatically re-enrolled as of Feb. 15. Once they their first premium, they will have coverage starting March 1, 2015.

Dowd says people who missed the deadline because of issues with either the federal website or the call center may still have options for enrolling during a special sign-up period that ends Sunday.
