New York: Enrollment data after all!! Well...sort of: 55K QHPs over 3 day period
2018 MIDTERM ELECTION
Time: D H M S
Oof. I've been compiling a lot of charts and graphs the past week or so based on what I thought were the most comprehensive 2017 enrollment numbers available to date. The biggest data gaps are Vermont and New York, neither of which has released any enrollment data yet...or so I thought.
However, I somehow completely forgot this post from the thick of the original December 15th deadline:
In the past three days, more than 55,000 New Yorkers have enrolled or renewed coverage through NY State of Health. The Customer Service Center has answered more than 1,000,000 calls since the start of Open Enrollment on November 1 and an average of 46,000 calls a day this week. The NY State of Health website has also experienced high traffic reaching 12,000 users in peak hours.
...This is also the first time this enrollment period that NYSoH has released any actual enrollment data: 55,000 renewals + new signups. Unfortunately, that number only includes 12/12 - 12/14...no earlier numbers are included. Still, I'll take what I can get...
OK, so I need to add 55K to the tally for the moment. At least I have something entered in the NY cell for now. This leaves Vermont as the only state without any data whatsoever.
