DENVER, Colo. (AP) Enrollment in Colorado's health insurance exchange and expanded Medicaid programs is ramping up steeply.

Connect For Health Colorado says that private policies climbed by two-thirds in the last two weeks.

Colorado's state-run exchange now has 9,980 members buying private policies. Many are subsidized by federal credits. That was up from 6,001 when the exchange last reported on Nov. 18.

The exchange totals are still far behind the board's worst-case projections for this point in the new program.
