Notes:

“N/A” means that the data for the respective metric are not yet available for a given state.

* Indicates that the data reported for the current month only include new consumers, and exclude reenrollees.

(1) Unless otherwise noted, the data in these tables represent cumulative data on the number of unique individuals who have selected a 2015 Marketplace medical plan for enrollment through the Marketplaces (with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the Marketplaces or the issuer). This is also known as pre-effectuated enrollment. These data do not include: cancellations and terminations; standalone dental plan selections; or individuals who may have selected a 2014 Marketplace plan during the reporting period, as a result of having been granted a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). This table only reflects data for the individual market Marketplaces. For additional technical notes, please refer to Appendix C of this report.

(2) “Distribution by Enrollment Type” represents the percentage of plan selections with available data on enrollment type that are new consumers vs. consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage.

(3) “New Consumers” are those individuals who selected a 2015 Marketplace medical plan (with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the Marketplaces or the issuer) as of the reporting date, and did not have a Marketplace plan selection as of November 2014. These data do not include: cancellations and terminations; standalone dental plan selections; or individuals who may have selected a 2014 Marketplace plan during the reporting period, as a result of having been granted a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). 3 SBM states that are using their own Marketplace platforms are reporting this metric.

(4) “Consumers Reenrolling in Marketplace Coverage” are those individuals who had a Marketplace plan selection as of November 2014, and have either actively submitted a 2015 application and selected a 2015 Marketplace medical plan or in applicable states using their own Marketplace platforms (Connecticut, Idaho, Kentucky, Vermont, and Washington), are being automatically reenrolled in Marketplace coverage – with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the Marketplaces or the issuer). These data do not include: cancellations and terminations; standalone dental plan selections; or individuals who may have selected a 2014 Marketplace plan during the reporting period, as a result of having been granted a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). 3 SBM states that are using their own Marketplace platforms are reporting this metric.

(5) California: The data that are being reported for California are for the following reporting period: 11-15-14 to 12-14-14. In a recent press release, Covered California recently stated that the comparable number as of 12-15-14 is 144,178 (see http://news.coveredca.com/2014/12/covered-california-and-department-of.html).

(6) California and New York only reported data on 2015 Marketplace plan selections by new consumers; data on the number of 2015 Marketplace plan selections by consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage are not yet available for these states.

(7) Several states have reported data on 2015 Marketplace plan selections that include plan selections by new consumers and plan selections by consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage, but have not yet reported any data on the distribution of Marketplace plan selections by enrollment status (new consumers vs. consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage for 2015).

(8) Several states (Connecticut, Idaho, Kentucky, Vermont, and Washington) initiated automatic reenrollment prior to 12-14-2014, and these numbers are included in their plan selection data.

(9) Idaho is an SBM that changed Marketplace platforms for the 2015 coverage year (Idaho transitioned from using the HealthCare.gov platform to using its own platform). Additionally, Massachusetts and Maryland changed their eligibility and enrollment system vendors for the 2015 coverage year. All of the plan selections for these states are being treated as new consumers for operational enrollment and reporting purposes.

(10) New York is currently unable to distinguish between Marketplace plan selections for the 2014 coverage year and Marketplace plan selections for the 2015 coverage year. Therefore, the plan selection data that are reported by New York may include a small number of plan selections from new consumers who were approved for a special enrollment period for 2014 Marketplace coverage between 11-15-14 and 12-15-14.

(11) For the HealthCare.gov states, the data on 2015 Marketplace plan selections includes data for new consumers and consumers who are actively reenrolling in Marketplace coverage, but does not include data for consumers who are being automatically reenrolled into coverage.

(12) Nevada, New Mexico, and Oregon are using the HealthCare.gov platform for 2015.

(13) Nevada and Oregon changed Marketplace platforms in 2015. Therefore, their 2015 Marketplace plan selections are generally being classified as new consumers for operational enrollment and reporting purposes. However, a small number of 2015 plan selections in these states may be classified as consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage in cases where an individual who had an active 2014 Marketplace plan selection in a HealthCare.gov state signs up for 2015 coverage in Oregon or Nevada.
