Hat Tip To:
Colorado issued a rough update the other day ("over 124K"), but they gave the official 4/15 tally today:
- Exchange-based Commercial Health Insurance (QHPs): 127,233
- New Medicaid Enrollees: 178,508
Oh, by the way: The "over 124K" press release issued on the 14th was a big part of the reason why I downshifted my total projection from the 7.9-8.0M range down to around 7.78M a few days back. I assumed that the only reason they would issue a number press release the day before the deadline would be if the enrollments were tapering off so much that there would only be a handful left to count on the final day.
Obviously I was wrong; CO managed to add another 3K QHPs on the last day.
