NY state health exchange reports 782,000 enrolled

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - With the 2014 enrollment deadline scheduled to fall at midnight Monday, the state Health Exchange says 1.13 million New Yorkers have completed applications for insurance though fewer than 800,000 have now enrolled for specific coverage.
The Department of Health says enrollment for individual and family coverage since October includes nearly 368,000 New Yorkers in the 16 commercial and nonprofit insurers in the exchange and nearly 415,000 in government-funded Medicaid.
Open enrollments continue through midnight Monday 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.
