Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange, is experiencing a significant surge in enrollment, officials said Thursday.

More than 53,500 customers selected health coverage plans in the last three days – about 60 percent more than the entire month of October when the exchange opened for business.

That includes 20,506 customers Wednesday, 19,351 Tuesday and 13,653 Monday, Executive Director Peter V. Lee told reporters. He said the increases illustrate how hundreds of thousands of residents are “anxious, excited and determined to get coverage.”
