Rhode Island 30.7K QHPs, 89.4% paid, 3,349 SHOP

It's a long press release, but here's the latest update out of Rhode Island (which has a FULL extension/overtime policy through 2/23).

The grand total: 30,744 QHPs, of which 27,487 have paid their first premium (89.4%). The payment rate has gone down because a huge number of those 30,744 just enrolled in the past week or so, and thus their payments aren't due for another week yet.

SHOP enrollments now stand at 3,349.

PROVIDENCE – HealthSource RI (HSRI) has released enrollment data, certain demographic data and certain volume metrics through Sunday, February 15, 2015, the last day of Open Enrollment.

Due to storm closings of the Providence Contact Center and Warwick Walk-in Center on February 15, however, there is a Special Enrollment Period through February 23 for any Rhode Islander who required assistance in-person or from a contact center representative on February 15 and was unable to access these services to enroll in coverage. These customers must choose a plan and pay the first month’s premium by February 23 for coverage beginning on March 1.

As of Sunday, February 15, 2015, 82% of Year One customers have renewed (selected a plan) for 2015
(79% of renewing customers paid the first month’s premium).
Total New Customers: 9,684 (7,539 paid)
Total Renewed Customers: 21,060 (19,948 paid)
Total HealthSource RI enrollments for 2015 coverage: 30,744 (27,487 paid)

*Note: Individuals who have selected a plan but not paid by their selected coverage effective date become cancelled; reported enrollment values (plan selections, paid and unpaid) will fluctuate with potential net decrease due to plan selection cancellation, as of the passage of the January coverage payment deadline.
