2020 OPEN ENROLLMENT ENDS (most states)

Time: D H M S

Weekly Snapshots

That figures...after waiting for this report to be released for like 3 hours earlier today, it just figures that it would be released right after I had to go pick my kid up from school...updating post as quickly as possible...refresh for updates...

NOTE: Last year CMS modified the official QHP selection total downwards by around 79,000 enrollees the week after the Week 7 report was released for various reason, mostly due to people making last-minute cancellations to their renewals or having their enrollment applications denied due to problems with legal residency verification or other data matching problems.

Week 6 via CMS:

Week 6, Dec 2-8, 2018

In week six of the 2019 Open Enrollment, 934,269 people selected plans using the HealthCare.gov platform. As in past years, enrollment weeks are measured Sunday through Saturday.  Consequently, the cumulative totals reported in this snapshot reflect one fewer day than last year.

Every week during Open Enrollment, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will release enrollment snapshots for the HealthCare.gov platform, which is used by the Federally-facilitated Exchanges and some State-based Exchanges. These snapshots provide point-in-time estimates of weekly plan selections, call center activity, and visits to HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov.

The final number of plan selections associated with enrollment activity during a reporting period may change due to plan modifications or cancellations. In addition, the weekly snapshot only reports new plan selections and active plan renewals and does not report the number of consumers who have paid premiums to effectuate their enrollment.

Definitions and details on the data are included in the glossary.

In past years, this blog post would be a pretty big deal for me, given that it's all about the very core of this website: ACA Signups. As both enrollees, carriers, analysts and reporters have gradually become more used to the annual Open Enrollment Periods, however, these Weekly Snapshots, while still extremely useful, have become somewhat mundane.

"Weeks" are measured from Sunday - Saturday regardless of what day November 1st falls on, thus the partial week being tallied. Last year, HealthCare.Gov enrolled over 601,462 people in the first four days of Open Enrollment, with 464,140 current enrollees manually renewing their policies and 137,322 new enrollees signing up. How about this year? Here's the official report from CMS:
