CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Federal officials say more than 26,000 West Virginians have signed up for the health insurance marketplace under the program’s second open enrollment.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says 26,236 people signed up ahead of the deadline Thursday for coverage starting Feb. 1.

For those who missed the deadline, an open enrollment period will extend until Feb. 15. If that deadline is missed, the earliest coverage for those seeking coverage would be 2016.

In the first month of the second enrollment, HHS says 85 percent of Virginia consumers who signed up were eligible for financial assistance.
