Nearly 8.5 million people selected a health plan through HealthCare.gov during 2019 open enrollment, including more than 4.3 million last week, according to preliminary data released today by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. That’s down from 8.8 million at the same time last year. The report shows total plan selections in the 39 states using HealthCare.gov for 2019 open enrollment, which ran through Dec. 15. It does not include consumers who enrolled in coverage through 3 a.m. ET on Dec. 16 or left their contact information at the call center due to high volume. CMS plans to release an updated snapshot next week with the final enrollment data.
