California’s health care exchange has exceeded last year’s insurance sign-ups during its first month of open enrollment as it nears a deadline for coverage to begin Jan. 1, Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee said Wednesday.

More people chose a plan in the first month than in the first two months of open enrollment last year. More than 144,000 residents have selected Covered California plans this year on the marketplace, which was created as part of President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.
