Health Insurance Marketplace 2015 Open Enrollment Period: January Enrollment Report. Section II. Data for the 14 States Using Their Own Marketplace Platforms

01/29/2015

Nearly 2.4 million individuals have selected 2015 Marketplace plans as of 1-17-15 in the 14 states (including DC) that are using their own Marketplace platforms for the 2015 coverage year.8 This includes:

  • 287,181 Marketplace plan selections in 4 states reporting data on new consumers and consumers actively reenrolling in Marketplace coverage (Hawaii, Idaho,9 Maryland, and Massachusetts); and
  • 2,095,823 Marketplace plan selections in 10 states reporting data on new consumers, consumers actively reenrolling in Marketplace coverage, and automatic reenrollees (California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Kentucky, Minnesota, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington).

A complete breakdown of the 2015 plan selections between new consumers and consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage is not yet available for all 14 of these states. This includes several states (Maryland, Massachusetts, and Idaho) that are unable to separate out data for new consumers compared to consumers reenrolling in Marketplace coverage due to system vendor changes or other information technology system issues.

This report also includes available data relating to completed applications, eligibility determinations, website visitors, and call center activity (see Table 4); as well as the overall distribution of Marketplace plan selections by gender, age, metal level, and financial assistance status. (See Appendix Table A2 for a summary of available data on the characteristics of Marketplace plan selections in these states, and Appendix Table D3 for a summary of which data are available for each state. Additionally, Appendix Tables C1, C2, C3, and C4 include state-level data for several metrics).

Notes:
(1) Most of the data in this table are for the 11-15-14 to 1-17-15 reporting period with the following exceptions: data for California are for 11-15-14 to 1-18-15.
(2) Total 2015 Marketplace Plan Selections generally represents cumulative data on the number of unique individuals who have selected a 2015 Marketplace medical plan for enrollment through the individual market Marketplaces (with or without the first premium payment having been received directly by the issuer). 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 (however, one state, Washington, has reported data on effectuated enrollment). These data do not include a count of the number of individuals who have selected a standalone dental plan. It also generally does not include data for 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 is unable to separate out the SEP data for the period 11/15-14-12-31-14.

8 Data for California are for 12-15-14 to 1-18-15.
9 Data for Idaho include some automatic reenrollees from their previous HealthCare.gov platform (Idaho used the HealthCare.gov platform during the 2014 coverage year); however, Idaho is treating all plan selections as new in 2015.
