Rhode Island: Final OE3 Tally: 34.7K QHPs

This just in from HealthSource RI:

PROVIDENCE – HealthSource RI (HSRI) has released certain enrollment, demographic and volume data through Saturday, January 31, 2016 for Open Enrollment.

INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY ENROLLMENT • As of January 31, 2016:

  • 34,670 individuals are enrolled in 2016 coverage through HSRI, paid and unpaid.
  • The majority of these individuals are 2015 HSRI enrollees that were auto-renewed into a 2016 plan.
  • 7,538 of the 34,670 individuals have selected a plan for 2016 coverage and are new to HSRI this year or returning after being enrolled with HSRI at some point during a prior year.

32,286* of the 34,670 individuals are enrolled in 2016 coverage through HSRI, and have paid their first month’s premium.
*The number of paid enrollments is expected to increase as individuals pay for March coverage through the February 23 payment deadline. 

In the end, after "pre-purging" around 5,500 unpaid enrollees, Rhode Island still managed to hit over 96% of my 36K target (if those 5,500 hadn't been pulled from the total, RI would've been about 11% ahead).

  • Small employer accounts created: 2,230
  • Small employer applications completed: 796
  • Small employer enrollment (paid): 564
  • These employers represent 4,111 covered lives
