Connecticut: 74K QHPs, 118K Medicaid, may hit 200K total by midnight

Connecticut chimes in, with nearly 192K total, including 74K exchange QHPs...

As of Sunday night, 191,961 people had signed up for coverage, with 74,000 in private health plans and the rest in government-funded Medicaid plans, said Access Health CT's CEO Kevin Counihan.

He said the exchange had been "swamped" on Monday, prompting the predictions of possibly 200,000 total enrollees since open enrollment began in October. It's unclear how many of those people were previously uninsured. An analysis is expected this summer.
