February Alert: State-by-State Open-Enrollment Results Posted, Research Begins on 2016 Edition

Researchers have begun work on the 2016 edition, and although most plans will not have 2016 enrollment data available for a couple more months, the new spreadsheets will be rolled out to you on this website as soon as they are available. We will alert you via email at that time. Meanwhile, we’ll be posting newsfeed items on various pieces of the puzzle as they begin to come together.

Just posted: State-by-state results of the recently concluded open-enrollment period for ACA exchanges. Read the newsfeed article and check In-App Downloads for a table of results to find out which health plans were in line to receive these 12.7 million enrollees.
