Another update from Nevada: Private QHPs up from 16,030 paid / 7,656 unpaid to 17,047 paid / 8,595 unpaid from 2/08 - 2/15.

This also gives some additional data to work with regarding the February Drop-off issue...and there's some good news here, whether you look at total QHPs or paid only:

Update as of 2/15: 25,642 Nevadans confirmed QHP Selections. 17,047 have paid.

  • Through 01/04 (Total): 17,673
  • Through 02/01 (Total): 22,597 (4,924 / 28 days = 175/day) 
  • Through 02/15 (Total): 25,642 (3,045 / 14 days = 218/day)
  • Through 01/04 (Paid Only): 10,547
  • Through 02/01 (Paid Only): 14,999 (4,452 / 28 days = 159/day)
  • Through 02/15 (Paid Only): 17,047 (2,048 / 14 days = 146/day)

In other words, Nevada's February enrollment rate is either up 24% per day over January if you include all enrollments, or down only 8% per day if you include paid enrollments only.
