Connecticut: Access Health CT enrolls 102.6K in first month of Open Enrollment; up 18% y/y so far

Via Access Health CT's News/Press Releases page:

Stats as of December 1, 2023

Qualified Health Plans (QHP):

  • QHP Enrollment In 2023 Coverage: 102,606
  • 2024 OE Acquisition Summary: 9,847


  • Completed applications/redeterminations processed through the integrated eligibility system: 30,435

It's my understanding that "Acquisition Summary" refers to CT residents who are brand-new enrollees (never enrolled via the exchange before).

The 102.6K figure includes auto-renewals being piled on top of the new/active renewal tally.

By comparison, last year Access Health CT reported enrolling 89,975 people through December 1st (one extra day since Nov. 1st fell on a Tuesday last year); this also included auto-renewals:

  • 2023: 89,975 in 31 days (2,902/day)
  • 2024: 102,606 in 30 days (3,420/day)

In other words, Connect's ACA exchange has enrolled 17.8% more people per day so far.

They've also enrolled 45% more brand-new enrollees per day, assuming my "Acquisition Summary" definition is correct.

Access Health CT's final tally at the end of Open Enrollment last year was 108,132, so they've already enrolled 94.9% of that.
