National plan selection data available to date show that as of mid-January, more than 9.5 million4 Americans had selected or been automatically reenrolled5 into a 2015 health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, specifically:
- More than 7.1 million people have selected or been automatically reenrolled into 2015 Marketplace plans in the 37 states that are using the HealthCare.gov platform in 2015 as of January 16th, including plan selections for new consumers and reenrollees (including both active reenrollees and automatic reenrollees); and
- Nearly 2.4 million people have selected or been automatically reenrolled into 2015 Marketplace plans in the 14 states (including DC) that are using their own Marketplace platforms in 2015, based on data through January 17th, including plan selections for new consumers and active reenrollees, and in most states, automatic reenrollees.
- Among the plan selections in the 37 states that are using the HealthCare.gov platform in 2015, 87 percent qualify for premium tax credits and/or cost-sharing reductions, and 2.5 million are under the age of 35.
4 It is important to note that these data generally represent the number of individuals who have selected, or been automatically reenrolled into a Marketplace plan, with or without payment of premium. 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. Data on effectuated enrollment are not yet available.
5 It is important to note that the preliminary reenrollment data in this report may include some individuals who were reenrolled in Marketplace coverage before 1-16-15, but who may ultimately decide not to retain Marketplace coverage for 2015 (for example, because they have obtained coverage through another source such as an employer or Medicaid/CHIP). We anticipate that to the extent possible, the plan selection data in future reports will exclude these individuals (e.g., due to the subsequent cancellation or termination of their coverage).
