321,932: Kentuckians are enrolled in new health coverage, including Medicaid and private insurance

257,477 have qualified for Medicaid coverage and 64,455 have purchased private insurance.

But wait, there's more (from the Kynect Facebook Page):

More than 321,000 Kentuckians are now enrolled in new healthcare coverage through kynect, and that number is expected to keep growing in the final 10 days of open enrollment. A preliminary analysis has found that approximately 75 percent of all enrollees report that they did not have insurance before signing up for healthcare coverage through kynect.

In terms of the March Surge, Kentucky's daily QHP rate is still running at about 2.2x February's rate, up very slightly from last week.
