Connecticut’s health insurance exchange enrolled a total of 13,128 individuals between Oct. 1 and Nov. 14, according to officials at Access Health CT.
Of those, 7,572 individuals chose plans through one of the three private insurance carriers and 5,556 were enrolled in Medicaid.
Connecticut’s enrollment continues to buck the trend seen in other states that are operating their own exchanges. In Connecticut, 57.6 percent have signed up for private plans and 42.3 percent are enrolling in Medicaid because they fall below 138 percent of the federal poverty level. Currently, Medicaid is only offered to individuals who fall below 55 percent of the federal poverty level, but that changes on Jan. 1 under the Affordable Care Act.
Demographic information about the age of the enrollees won’t be available until Monday, according to an Access Health CT official.
