Affordable Care Act Enrollments Roll On

Washington, DC...In the last week of Open Enrollment for 2018, 4,143,968 people selected plans using the HealthCare.gov platform or were automatically re-enrolled in a plan. As in past years, enrollment weeks are measured Sunday through Saturday.




This Open Enrollment snapshot covers the period from December 10, 2017, to 11:59PM Eastern Time on December 15, 2017. The plan selections reported in this snapshot are not final and do not include plan selections for consumers who enrolled in coverage through 3:00AM Eastern Time on December 16, 2017, or consumers who left their contact information at the call center due to high volume. These snapshots provide point-in-time estimates of weekly plan selections, call center activity, and visits to HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov. The final number of plan selections associated with enrollment activity during a reporting period may change due to plan modifications or cancellations. CMS plans to release an updated snapshot next week with the final enrollment data.

In addition, the week seven snapshot only reports new plan selections, active plan renewals, and automatic enrollments and does not report the number of consumers who have paid premiums to effectuate their enrollment. This snapshot does not include plan selections from State-based Exchanges, other than those using the HealthCare.gov platform. CMS plans to release a detailed 2018 final enrollment report in March, including final plan selection data from State-based Exchanges that do not use the HealthCare.gov platform.

Definitions and details on the data are included in the glossary.

Glossary

Plan Selections: The cumulative metric represents the total number of people who have submitted an application and selected a plan, net of any cancellations from a consumer or cancellations from an insurer that have occurred to date. The weekly metric represents the net change in the number of non-cancelled plan sections over the period covered by the report.

Plan selections include those consumers who are automatically re-enrolled into a plan.

To have their coverage effectuated, consumers generally need to pay their first month’s health plan premium. This release does not report the number of effectuated enrollments.

New Consumers: A consumer is considered to be a new consumer if they did not have 2017 Exchange coverage through December 31, 2017 and had a 2018 plan selection.

Renewing Consumers: A consumer is considered to be a renewing consumer if they have 2017 Exchange coverage through December 31, 2017 and either actively select the same plan or a new plan for 2018.

Exchange: Generally, this report refers to 39 Exchanges that use the HealthCare.gov platform. The Exchanges using the HealthCare.gov platform for the individual market Exchanges are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

HealthCare.gov States: The 39 Exchanges that use the HealthCare.gov platform for the 2018 benefit year, including the Federally-facilitated Exchanges, State Partnership Exchanges, and some State-based Exchanges.

Consumers on Applications Submitted: This includes a consumer who is on a completed and submitted application to the Exchange using the HealthCare.gov platform. If determined eligible for Exchange coverage, a consumer still needs to pick a health plan (i.e., plan selection) and pay their premium to get covered (i.e., effectuated enrollment). Because families can submit a single application, this figure tallies the total number of people on a submitted application (rather than the total number of submitted applications).

Call Center Volume: The total number of calls received by the call center for the 39 Exchanges that use the HealthCare.gov platform over the time period covered by the snapshot. Calls with Spanish speaking representatives are not included.

Calls with Spanish Speaking Representative: The total number of calls received by the call center for the 39 Exchanges that use the HealthCare.gov platform over the time period covered by the snapshot where consumers chose to speak with a Spanish-speaking representative. These calls are not included within the Call Center Volume metric.

HealthCare.gov Users or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Users: These user metrics total how many unique users viewed or interacted with HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov, respectively, over the course of a specific date range. For cumulative totals, a separate report is run for the entire Open Enrollment period to minimize users being counted more than once during that longer range of time and to provide a more accurate estimate of unique users. Depending on an individual’s browser settings and browsing habits, a visitor may be counted as a unique user more than once.

Window Shopping HealthCare.gov Users or CuidadoDeSalud.gov Users: These user metrics total how many unique users interacted with the window-shopping tool at HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov, respectively, over the course of a specific date range. For cumulative totals, a separate report is run for the entire Open Enrollment period to minimize users being counted more than once during that longer range of time and to provide a more accurate estimate of unique users. Depending on an individual’s browser settings and browsing habits, a visitor may be counted as a unique user more than once. Users who window-shopped are also included in the total HealthCare.gov or CuidadoDeSalud.gov user total.

It’s because Obama was a real president. Trump is the zero credibility president. Non stop lying, paying back his racist base president.

        As someone who is on Medicare, I can tell you that it is not free. But it is affordable and the copays are reasonable. Or you can buy a supplemental policy that covers your copays. Just so you know.

        I also worked for over 50 years after college, made good money and paid a lot of money over those years for the Medicare benefit I receive now.

        I suggest you whining millennials do the same thing. Get an education, get a good job, pay your taxes, save some money, and maybe you too can have a secure retirement. Oh, and don't vote for GOP candidates because they have repeatedly tried to take away your future Medicare and Social Security benefits. If you don't believe that, you need to start following the news more.

    Hmmmm, don't see too many Californians in that report. Could be that the repel of the Obama Care fines should one have chosen not to sign up and receive a fine may have revealed the truth about a nation wide law that was shoved down the throats of Americans. And just a reminder, Ms. Pelosie never read the American Affordable Care Act prior to signing it either (A fact she admitted shortly after its passage).

      No, you idiot. California is not listed because CA set up its own exchanges. That is the listing for the federal site used by people in states that did not set up their own exchange. Good grief.

Donald if you had any balls, would go get your current health problems evaluated with no or crappy insurance! He'd be begging for Obamacare.

      This is not true, but you knew that, right? Just because Trump lies continuously, there is no reason for you to do that. Try not to make your momma embarrassed.
