Connecticut: 107.7K QHPs, cracks down on SEP verification, requires on/off exchange commission parity

It may seem a little silly to keep posting these tiny individual-state updates with everything going on at the moment, but every enrollee counts. Access Health CT held their monthly board meeting yesterday and posted some noteworthy data/policy points.

The irony is that this is exactly how the ACA should be being handled by Congress and the President: By using actual hard data and logic, problem-solving, fixing what's broken and improving upon what isn't.

...none of which seems to mean a damned thing to Trump or the Trumpublican Party.

107,736 have enrolled in a QHP for 2017. That includes 12k new customers. #AHCTBoDMeeting

Last year, 50% of #AHCT customers used broker to enroll. This year, only 25%. #AHCTBoDMeeting

Of 107k who enrolled so far, more than 25k get no financial help to pay for coverage. #AHCT seen as trusted resource #AHCTBoDMeeting

Approved: require all carriers that sell through #AHCT next year to pay same broker commissions on and off exchange #AHCTBoDMeeting
