Connecticut: 114.4K QHPs thru 12/29

This is just a minor update from a few days ago, but the article does a nice job of breaking the numbers out so it seems worth closing the year out with this Access Health CT update:

The numbers below are as of the end of day on Dec. 29 are:

  • Unique website visitors: 234,695
  • Calls answered: 267,680
  • New health plan enrollees since Nov. 1: 27,035
  • Number of new enrollees who are first time customers: 10,298 (subset of number above)
  • Medicaid – (completed applications/redeterminations processed through the integrated eligibility system): 54,277
  • Number of new Medicaid applications from first time customers: 11,782 (subset of number above)
  • Total currently active for 2016 and/or 2017 in private health insurance coverage: 114,421

The precise wording of that last line ("currently active for 2016 and/or 2017") leaves open the possibility that some of these may be among the 12,000 or so current enrollees who still have to actively choose another plan for 2017 (starting in February at this point). However, the prior update specifically stated that "around 113,000" have enrolled for 2017 so far, so it sounds like 114,421 is the correct, updated number after all. 27K of these are new enrollees, or around 23.6%.
