PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — More than 26,000 people have signed up for coverage on Rhode Island's health exchange next year.

HealthSource RI was set up as part of the federal Affordable Care Act.

Enrollment figures released Wednesday show that about 20,300 people renewed their coverage for 2015 so far, or 78 percent of those who were covered in 2014. About 6,000 people signed up for the first time and about 500 small employers completed applications.

Enrollment for 2015 ends Feb. 15.

Last year more than 25,000 people signed up for coverage.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island, United HealthCare and Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island are offering plans through the exchange.
