In the final two days of the open enrollment period just over 45,000 New Yorkers signed up for health insurance.

January 31st - the deadline to sign up was the busiest day ever for the Marketplace’s website - with nearly 3 million page views.

Overall, the number of people who enrolled increased from last year by 28 percent. Several other state-based marketplaces reported an increase in enrollment - despite uncertainty about what will happen to the Affordable Care Act.
