Some 828,638 Californians enrolled in health coverage via the state health insurance exchange through the first two weeks of February, officials said Wednesday.

The tally puts Covered California on pace to exceed its projected base enrollment for the first six months of the program through March, Executive Director Peter V. Lee said. Some 626,210 enrollees are eligible for subsidies through January, Lee said, and roughly 8 in 10 have paid their first month’s premium.
