Marketplace Plan Selection By Age


Percentages in this table have been rounded. Some numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
Unless otherwise noted, the data in this table represent cumulative data on the number of unique individuals who have been determined eligible to enroll in a Marketplace plan through the SBMs and FFM, and have selected a plan (with or without the first premium payment having been received by the issuer). Special Enrollment Period (SEP) activity includes plan selections that were made between 4-1-14 and 4-19-14 by those who qualified for an SEP because they were “in line” on 3-31-14, as well as those who experienced a qualifying life event or a complex situation related to applying for coverage in the Marketplace. For additional methodological information, please refer to Appendix F of this report.
(2) For each metric, the data represent the total number of Individuals Determined Eligible to Enroll in a plan Through the Marketplace who have selected a plan (with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the Marketplace or the issuer) during the reference period, excluding plan selections with unknown data for a given metric. This is also known as pre-effectuated enrollment.
(3) In some cases, the data for certain characteristics of Marketplace plan selections are not yet available. For this reason, for each metric, we have calculated the comparable percentages based on the number of plan selections with known data for that metric.
(4) The FFM subtotals for each metal tier type do not sum to the total number of Plan Selections With Available Data on Metal Level due to instances where consumers enrolled in more than one plan type in their state (for example, some consumers may have enrolled in both a health plan and a standalone dental plan). As a result, the corresponding percentages also do not sum to 100 percent. This also affects the data for the Marketplace total. To the extent possible, duplication associated with standalone dental plan selection has been removed from the data shown in this table.
