The state Health Exchange says 1.26 million New Yorkers have completed applications for insurance while more than 908,000 have enrolled for specific coverage.

The Department of Health says enrollment for individual and family coverage since October includes nearly 422,000 New Yorkers in the 16 commercial and nonprofit insurers in the exchange and nearly 487,000 in government-funded Medicaid.

More than 70 percent were uninsured.

Open enrollment ended in March for 2014 coverage at state-approved rates, though it continues through April 15 for those who took steps to apply in advance but didn't complete it.

Individual insurance enrollments will continue for individuals who marry or divorce, gain a dependent, lose employer coverage or move into the state.

Enrollments for Medicaid and for businesses with up to 50 employees continue through the year.
