News Release from US Department of Health and Human Services May 1, 2014

Nationwide, enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace surged to eight million at the end of the first enrollment period, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today.  In Hawaii alone, 8,592 individuals selected a Marketplace plan. The final enrollment reporting period spans from October 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014, and includes “in line” and other enrollment activity (such as people enrolling due to a change in life circumstance) reported through Saturday, April 19, 2014.

HHS also announced today that an additional 32,209 Hawaiians enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP through the end of March 2014, compared to enrollment before the Marketplace opened last October.   Hawaii has decided to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

“More than 8,592 Hawaiians signed up through the Marketplace, demonstrating brisk demand for quality, affordable coverage,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “Together we are ensuring that health coverage is more accessible than ever before, which is important for families, for businesses and for Hawaii’s health and wellbeing.”

Key findings from today’s report include:

--8,592 Hawaiians selected Marketplace plans from October 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014, (including additional Special Enrollment Period activity through April 19th).

--Of the 8,592 Hawaiians who selected a plan:

  • 50% are female and 50% are male;
  • 33% are under age 35;
  • 20% are between the ages of 18 and 34;
  • 26% selected a Silver plan, while 41% selected a Bronze plan; and,
  • 38% selected a plan with financial assistance.

Today’s report measures enrollment as those who selected a plan.  (How many select a plan and then not pay premiums.)  In some states, only partial datasets were available.
