Report: State-Based Marketplaces More Successful Than HealthCare.gov
Through March 1, the state-based health insurance marketplaces were generally more successful in achieving enrollment projections than the federally facilitated marketplaces, according to a report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute.
As of March 1, HHS reported more than 4.2 million people had selected health plans through the PPACA marketplaces (as of April 1, that number had risen to 7.1 million). Researchers compared that enrollment data on a state-specific level with projected enrollment for 2014 and 2016 based on survey data. They found that, overall, state-based marketplaces had achieved 76 percent of projected 2014 enrollment by March 1, compared with 54 percent for the federally facilitated marketplaces.
