Colorado: 17.3K more Coloradans enrolled via @C4HCO since 2/08; #GetCovered thru 8/15!
In addition to the 940,000 Americans who have enrolled in ACA coverage across the 36 states hosted by HealthCare.Gov to date during the COVID Special Enrollment Period, Connect for Health Colorado just announced that the Centennial State has enrolled over 17,200 more people via their own COVID SEP:
DENVER — 17,282 Coloradans have signed up for a health insurance plan since Connect for Health Colorado re-opened enrollment on Feb. 8, with more than 7,500 sign ups in the last month alone. That uptick in enrollments coincides with the date that Connect for Health Colorado began offering increased savings on health insurance to residents of all income ranges following the passage of the American Rescue Plan.
Hmmm...I know they say "7,500 in the past month", but they reported 9,971 as of 4/07, so that should mean 7,311 in the past month. Huh.
Still, using the 17,282 figure, it should break out to something like:
- 2/08 - 3/05: 4,700 (180/day)
- 3/06 - 4/07: 5,271 (160/day)
- 4/08 - 5/05: 7,311 (261/day)
Overall, that's 17,282 over 87 days, or 198 QHP selections per day...or roughly 2.1x the pace of the 96/day C4HCO averaged in spring 2019 or 19% more than the 167/day from spring 2020.
I'm assuming that the ~190 "discrepancy" can be explained by terminations / cancellations of some of the earlier QHP selections from Febuary & March.
