IDAHO: Only 5.5% net QHP attrition since OE3
Over the past week or two I've been compiling the currently effectuated exchange enrollments for as many states as possible (the official Q1 ASPE effectuation report likely won't be available until early June). So far I have the data from either February, March or April for 7 states: CO, CT, MA, MN, NH, OK and WA.

Hello Mr. Gaba,
Your Health Idaho’s effectuated enrollments for March stand at 95,522. Numbers for April are preliminary at this point.
That compares to 101,073 QHP selections as of the end of the 2016 Open Enrollment Period, which means that as of 3/31/16, Idaho had only lost 5.5% of their total enrollments, which is fantastic considering the 13-17% drop on average from the other states so far.
Even for Idaho itself, this is impressive. Last year they went from 97,079 QHP selections as of 2/22/15 to 84,987 effectuations as of 3/31/15, or a 12.5% drop over 5 weeks.
Adding Idaho to the mix gives the following:
