Enrollment through Kentucky's health benefits website has grown by more than 11,000 in a 10-day period starting Thanksgiving week.
A news release from Beshear's office says the site enrolls about 1,000 Kentuckians a day.
The largest increase during the period from Nov. 26 to last Thursday was among people buying private health insurance plans. The state says nearly 4,000 people chose a new private insurance police, a 32 percent increase.
Nearly 72,000 people had enrolled in new health coverage as of last Thursday, including Medicaid and private insurance.
