2018 MIDTERM ELECTION

Time: D H M S

Minnesota: 43.4K QHPs, 54.4K Medicaid/MNCare to date

Last week, with autorenewals added into the mix, MNsure was sitting at 41,704 QHPs as of January 5th. They just posted another update running through last night (the date of the numbers is actually as of the night before, as made clear from the corresponding press releases):

Latest Enrollment Numbers: January 16, 2015

MNsure will release 2015 enrollment metrics weekly, and will present a more robust metrics summary to the MNsure Board of Directors at each regularly-scheduled board meeting. During weeks that MNsure is closed on Friday, the enrollment metrics update will be released earlier in the week.

Health Coverage Type Cumulative Enrollments
Medical Assistance 38,405
MinnesotaCare 16,056
Qualified Health Plan (QHP) 43,461

TOTAL 97,922

So, that's another 1,757 QHPs in 10 days, or 176 per day. As of today, they're at 65% of their official target (67K), or 58% of my MN target (75K). At the current rate they'd only add another 5,400 or so by 2/15 (around 49K total), coming up short of both goals...but again, there will almost certainly be a significant final surge between February 10th - 15th.

In short, MNsure reaching their target for the year is gonna be awfully tight, but they still have a decent shot at pulling it off.
