HARTFORD, Conn. – Enrollment through Connecticut’s health insurance exchange has increased to 126,653, according to officials at Access Health CT.
Of those, 53,673 individuals have chosen plans with one of the three private insurance carriers and 72,980 individuals enrolled in Medicaid between Oct. 1 and Feb. 18. That means about 4,670 individuals enrolled between Feb. 10 and Feb. 18.
Officials at Access Health CT are attributing the bump in enrollment to an advertising campaign they’ve been running during the Olympics. Compared with the week prior to the Olympics, the exchange saw a 31 percent increase in web traffic, a 24 percent increase in account creation, an 8 percent increase in call volume, and a 67 percent increase in daily enrollment.
Enrollment in the exchange is open until March 31.
