Washington State: Small but solid gains from Jan. 2 to Jan. 9

I really, really like the way that the Washington Health Exchange does their press releases. No screwing around, they make the key numbers clear and obvious, and they make sure to separate out unpaid private QHPs as well as Medicaid "redeterminations" (ie, those who already had Medicaid under the pre-ACA rules and are simply renewing it).

As a result, here's where Washington State stands as of January 9: Private enrollments went from 71,205 paid / 72,178 unpaid (143,383 total) to 73,098 / 76,058 (149,156 total), while new Medicaid enrollments increased from 177,065 up to 197,770.

Thus, since Jan. 2nd, WA has increased private QHPs by 4% and Medicaid enrollments by almost 12%.

As an added bonus, WA also separates out the other Big, Important Number: How many Medicaid enrollees are renewals vs. how many are new. I do not include renewals in the spreadsheet in cases where I can separate them out.

Qualified Health Plans: 73,098

Medicaid Newly Eligible Adults: 134,700

Medicaid Previously Eligible but not Enrolled: 63,070

Qualified Health Plan Applicants – Need to Pay   76,058

Medicaid Redeterminations (Previously Covered)  183,141
