ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state authorities say three other insurers have agreed to automatically enroll individuals covered by Health Republic Insurance of New York as it shuts down.

The Department of Financial Services and Department of Health say about 100,000 individual members in the cooperative can select a new insurance plan for the rest of this year through the state Health Exchange by Nov. 30.

After that, state officials say those individuals who haven’t done so will be automatically enrolled with another insurer, and the three collectively cover the whole state.

Authorities say that the three insurers have agreed to credit any deductible and out-of-pocket amounts that consumers have already paid through their Health Republic coverage during 2015.

Health Republic’s small group plans also covered 101,500 people.
