More than 8.7 million people selected a 2018 health plan, or were automatically re-enrolled in a plan, during open enrollment at, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reported last week. The report updates the agency’s previous estimate, which did not include consumers who selected or deselected a plan after Dec. 15 due to high volume. About 72% of people selecting plans were renewing coverage and the rest were new consumers. Thirty-nine states use for enrollment. CMS plans to issue a more detailed report in March that includes enrollment data from all states.
