Crunching the Numbers

To Our Valued Stakeholders,

Now that our sixth Open Enrollment Period has closed, we are excited to share data about who enrolled and from what part of the state. Our staff are busy crunching numbers. We will release our official Open Enrollment Report by mid-March.

While we are doing all of our calculations, this week, we shared some high-level data with our Board of Directors that you may find interesting:

  • 170,741 medical plan submissions for the 2019 Open Enrollment Period – up 2% from 2018 Open Enrollment Period
  • 22% new customers and 78% renewing customers
  • 77% of customers applied for and will receive financial assistance – up from 69% in 2018

We also shared specific county-by-county data.

In the News

In Colorado and in the national healthcare policy debate, there is a lot of discussion of public versus private healthcare. A Vox health writer provided some international examples this week, reporting that all of the dozens of countries with universal coverage rely in some degree on private health insurance.


Take care,
