Connecticut: Access Health CT enrolls 106.4K during Open Enrollment; up 17% y/y so far

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

Stats as of December 8, 2023

Qualified Health Plans (QHP):

  • QHP Enrollment In 2023 Coverage: 106,415
  • 2024 OE Acquisition Summary: 12,636


  • Completed applications/redeterminations processed through the integrated eligibility system: 33,967

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

The 106.4K figure includes auto-renewals being piled on top of the new/active renewal tally.

By comparison, last year Access Health CT reported enrolling 93,479 people through December 8th (one extra day since Nov. 1st fell on a Tuesday last year); this also included auto-renewals:

  • 2023: 93,479 in 38 days (2,460/day)
  • 2024: 106,415 in 37 days (2,876/day)

In other words, Connect's ACA exchange has enrolled 16.9% more people per day so far.

They've also enrolled 42% 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 98.4% of that.
