Percentages in this table have been rounded. Some numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
(1) 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, and have selected a Marketplace medical plan (with or without the first premium payment having been received by the issuer). These data do not include a count of the number of individuals who have selected a standalone dental plan; 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), however New York was unable to separate out SEP data for the period 11/15-14-12-31-14. For additional technical notes, please refer to Appendix D of this report.
(2) For each metric, the data represent the total number of “Individuals Applying for 2015 Coverage in Completed Applications” who have selected a 2015 medical Marketplace plan for enrollment through the Marketplace (with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the issuer) during the reference period, excluding plan selections with unknown data for a given metric. This is also known as pre-effectuated enrollment, because enrollment is not considered effectuated until the first premium payment is made, and this figure includes plan selections for which enrollment has not yet been effectuated. New York’s data also includes individuals applying for coverage during the SEP for 2014 coverage during the period 11-15-2014 – 12-31-2014.
(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 subtotals for each metal tier type do not sum to the total number due to a small number of individuals (0.1%) who have multiple 2015 Marketplace plan selections in the system that will be resolved through data cleanup processes. Data for standalone dental plan selections are shown separately in this section, but are not included in any of the other metrics in this table.
