ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) - Over 40,000 people in NY have signed up for health insurance using the state's new health plan marketplace, according to officials.
NY State of Health launched just over a week ago, and already officials say many have taken advantage of quality, low-cost insurance plans during the six-month enrollment period.
Executive Director Donna Frescatore said, "This fast pace of sign-ups shows that New York State's exchange is working smoothly with an overwhelming response from New Yorkers eager to get access to low cost health insurance. We will continue to encourage our state's residents to sign up for health insurance online, over the phone and at the hundreds of on-site centers we have across New York."
