Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Snapshot

Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment Snapshot

On January 31, Open Enrollment for 2016 coverage ended, with about 12.7 million plan selections through the Health Insurance Marketplaces. Of the 12.7 million consumers enrolling in Marketplace coverage, over 9.6 million came through the platform and 3.1 million selected a plan through State-based Marketplaces.

Of the 9.6 million consumers who got coverage through the platform, about 4.0 million are new consumers, which means about 42 percent of all plan selections were from new consumers. This does not include other new plan selections from State-based Marketplaces which will increase the total number of new consumers for 2016. In addition to the 4 million new consumers, about 3.9 million were returning Marketplace consumers who actively selected a plan and about 1.7 million were automatically enrolled by the Marketplace.
