As the March 31 deadline approaches and the website problems have been ironed out, more and more New Yorkers are signing up for health insurance as part of the Affordable Care Act. The state health department reports 587,000 completed applications have been filed, and enrollment is up 43 percent since December 24. Heather Howard is the program director for the state network, which is funded by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to encourage people to enroll. She recently spoke to WAMC’s  Brian Shields.
