Three weeks since the Affordable Care Act’s Oct. 1 rollout, at least 150,000 people have successfully signed up for a health insurance plan using New York state’s website, according to the Albany Times Union.

“In less than three weeks since the launch of NY State of Health, already nearly 150,000 NewYorkers have signed up for quality, low-cost health insurance,” said Donna Frescatore, executive director of the state online marketplace, in an emailed statement. “Thousands of New Yorkers have not only registered, but actually enrolled in and purchased insurance coverage through the NY State of Health website, according to the state Health Department. Officials will not say how many, and have promised that number soon.”
