Connecticut, the first state to exceed their March 31 enrollment deadline back on December 23rd, continues to keep their momentum up, adding at least another 12,000 people to their rolls since the 12/23 deadline for January coverage. The article doesn't distinguish between private plans and Medicaid expansion, so I've broken it out roughtly 55/45 for now to match their previous numbers.
This brings CT up to nearly 41,000 private enrollments and over 33,000 added to Medicaid/CHIP.
Many state residents are aware that enrollment is still open, as Counihan said enrollment through Access Health CT has remained strong over the past week or so.That quote really says it all, although he does add:
"We're still doing a thousand a day," Counihan said. "I would have thought that, after Dec. 23, things would have really dipped."
He said he expects the dip will happen soon, but that it won't last long. "I think it's going to be a really slow January, then pick up in mid-February and March is going to be a zoo," he said.
