Kentucky

OK, this is a new one...two updates for the same state only 14 hours apart:

Hot off the press at #RWJFRR - Kentucky official says 195,502 have used Kynect to get coverage (up by 12,000 this week). 44,160 are in QHPs.

That's 760 more QHPs / 12,742 more Medicaid/CHIP enrollees than I had last night. This also brings Kentucky up to over 20% of their absurdly-high "projection" of 220,000 QHPs (or, conversely, 46.4% of the more reasonable "Proportional % of 7 Million" figure).

UPDATE: I should have noted that the actual total number of new Medicaid enrollments for Kentucky is now over 206,000 if you include direct (off-exchange) enrollments.

OK, no exact numbers here, but the totals on 1/24 were 42K Private and 136K Medicaid/CHIP, so similar ratios would be about 1,400 extra QHPs and 4,600 Medicaid/CHIP additions.

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear said Monday that 182,000 Kentuckians have signed up through Kynect since October 1.

Kentucky continues to slowly but steadily increase their tally, hitting 19% of their CMS projection target with 42,000 private QHP enrollees as of last Thursday. The 2,200 new additions have been subtracted from the "Not broken out by state" pool, bringing that total down to 486,500. Again, any new exchange enrollees which are added up through Jan. 23 will be subtracted from this since it fills out the "3 million" total announced by Kathleen Sebelius last week.

Meanwhile, on the Medicaid side, Kentucky added another 12,000 new enrollees, bringing them up to 189,000 when you add the 55K direct additions. It's important to note that according to the CMS reports, these people should all be new to Medicaid, not renewed accounts.

As of Thursday, according to the state, 176,000 Kentuckians have signed up for health insurance.

So far 42,000 have signed up for private insurance, or roughly 14 percent of the total number of uninsured Kentuckians. That compares to 134,000, or 44 percent of those eligible, who have signed up for Medicaid.

Not much to say here, just steady improvement. Kentucky's Private QHP Enrollments have gone up from 33,289 to 39,771, a 19% increase since January 2nd. Medicaid Enrollments are up from 100,359 to 122,328, a 22% increase. Kentucky is now up to 18% of their absurdly high CMS projection level.

122,328 have enrolled in Medicaid and

39,771 have enrolled in a qualified health plan (QHP).

Nearly 44% of the enrollees in Medicaid or qualified health plans are under 35 years old.

Kentucky's enrollment continues to quietly but steadily increase, with private exchange enrollments up 5% over Christmas Eve (from 31,672 to 33,289) and Medicaid expansion up 7% (from 84,480 to 90,254). Ironically, for all the praise they receive for their exchange running so smoothly, KY is actually still only at about 15% of their CBO goal, mainly because it was set absurdly high in the first place (220,000, or slightly higher than New York which has a population 4.5x as large).
