HHS: 3.3 Million Private Enrollments through end of January

ACASignups.net, 5 days ago:

I'm calling the January HHS Exchange-Based Private QHP Total an even 3.3 Million even as of 2/1/14.

CNBC, moments ago:

A total of 3,299,492 had enrolled in Obamacare plans as of Feb. 1, according to HHS.

Damn. I was off by 0.017%. :)

OK, this is gonna take a bit of time to absorb and recompile to the spreadsheets, graph and the blog, but here's the main points:

  • 3.3 million Private QHPs as of 02/01/14, as I expected
  • 1.9 million via the Federal exhange (HC.gov)
  • 1.4 million via the 15 State exchange (14 states + DC)
  • 25% between 18 - 34 years old
  •  

Here's the official HHS Dept. Press Release and a direct link to the actual January Enrollment Report:

Enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace increases by 53 percent in January

Enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace continued to rise in January, with a 53 percent increase in overall enrollment over the prior three month reporting period, with young adult enrollment outpacing all other age groups combined, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today.

Nearly 3.3 million people enrolled in the Health Insurance Marketplace plans by Feb. 1, 2014 (the end of the fourth reporting period for open enrollment), with January alone accounting for 1.1 million plan selections in state and federal marketplaces.  In January, 27 percent of those who selected plans in the Federally-facilitated Marketplace are between the ages of 18 and 34, a three percentage point increase over the figure reported for the previous three month period.  Young adult enrollment grew by 65 percent in January, from 489,460 at the end of December to 807,515 as of Feb. 1, while all other age groups combined grew by 55 percent.
