SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – New enrollments in California’s state-run health insurance marketplace are up 16% compared to last year. Covered California released the numbers Thursday. Executive Director Peter Lee says the numbers are higher because the state is offering more money to help people pay their monthly insurance premiums. The state will also tax people next year who don’t have health insurance. Sunday is the deadline for people to purchase insurance plans on Covered California and have them be effective by Jan. 1. The enrollment deadline is Jan. 31. More than 1.13 million people have renewed their plans for next year.
