Halfway through the federal health care law’s enrollment period that started Oct. 1, more than a million Californians have signed up for some form of health insurance, according to figures released Tuesday by the state’s new insurance marketplace.

Covered California’s executive director, Peter Lee, said that by mid-January, 625,564 people had enrolled in an insurance plan through the exchange — an increase of almost 127,000 since Dec. 28, when the exchange last reported numbers to the federal government.
