CT exchange members more likely to get financial assistance and slightly older than other states
federal ACA enrollment report finds that AccessHealthCT, CT’s health insurance exchange, received 76,460 total applications between Nov. 15th and Jan. 16th. 162,921 state residents were found eligible for Medicaid. Of the 142,287 applicants eligible for exchange coverage, 77% are also eligible for financial assistance – higher than the 70% average across all state-based exchanges. 24% of people who’ve made a plan selection in CT are ages 18 to 34. This is lower than the state-based exchange average (26%) and below our neighboring states (MA 29%, NY 28%, RI 25%).
