The operators of Minnesota's state-run health exchange say a little more than 200,000 people have signed up for coverage through the exchange.
    
MNsure interim chief executive Scott Leitz says the exact number is 200,174.
    
March 31 was the deadline for most people to get coverage or face a tax penalty. The number of enrollees has been slowly climbing as the state continues to process people who started their application before the deadline. The state had set a goal of 135,000 people soon after the MNsure website launched last October and suffered severe technical issues.
    
MNsure recently signed a nearly $5 million contract with Deloitte Consulting to manage an overhaul of the website and computer systems.
