CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Latest enrollment numbers show Nevada's health insurance exchange is still 30,000 shy of meeting revised targets by the end of the month.

Officials say 30,000 people have selected insurance plans through the state's online web portal that operates as Nevada Health Link. Of those, about 21,000 have actually paid for coverage - roughly 1,000 more than the week before.

But the total is well short of the downgraded target of 50,000 enrollments by March 31 and nowhere near the 118,000 originally projected before the system went live last fall and was quickly mired in problems.

The board overseeing Nevada's state-run exchange on Thursday will consider extending the March 31 deadline to give people stuck in the process more time to complete the application process.
