Massachusetts wraps up 2019 ACA Open Enrollment by breaking 300K QHPs!
This is a very quick post as I’m in the middle of the Families USA healthcare conference, but it’s a significant one: The Massachusetts Health Connector, which wrapped up their 2019 ACA Open Enrollment Period last night, just reported the following:
Here is an update as of today, with Open Enrollment having ended last night.
Note: These numbers below should be considered something of a high-water mark. There will be fluctuations as plan-selecteds lose their window, members terminate, but also some applicants end up enrolling in March coverage.
Total enrollments (Including all January, February and March enrollments to date): 292,006
Plan selected/unenrolled: 8,079
2019 enrollment as defined by CMS: 300,085
Our new enrollment (people who did not have Health Connector coverage as of Nov. 1) is 60,361. This is a 23 percent increase from last year’s 49,034 at the same point in time.
Our retention rate is currently 89.7 percent, up about 2.6 percent from last year.
- 2014: 31,695 (major technical problems)
- 2015: 140,540 (complete platform overhaul)
- 2016: 213,883
- 2017: 266,664
- 2018: 267,260
- 2019: 300,085
I’ll leave it at that for the moment. Awesome numbers.
