More signing up for subsidized insurance

By Alice Dembner, Globe Staff

Another 10,000 people enrolled in state-subsidized health insurance plans last month, the state announced yesterday, bringing the total to more than 79,000.

The plans, called Commonwealth Care, are open to adults without access to insurance at work who make up to $30,630 a year as individuals or $61,950 for a family of four.

Between 50,000 and 80,000 eligible individuals have yet to sign up, depending on who's counting.

For information on the plans, call 877-623-6765 or go to
