Have you signed up for insurance through the new Health Exchange yet?

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter says four community health care centers are receiving more money to help people sign up for health insurance.

The Anthony Jordan Health Corporation, Rochester Primary Care Network, Unity Hospital and Oak Orchard Community Center will receive $25,000 each. The four grants were authorized by the Affordable Care Act.

The Congresswoman says these grants will help the centers serve more people through things like expanding hours or hiring more workers.

As of the first of the month, more than 90,000 people have enrolled in plans through New York's Health Exchange.
