147,109 people in Oregon signed up for 2016 coverage through HealthCare.gov

Marketplace signups exceed Department’s goals

On January 31, Open Enrollment for 2016 coverage ended, with about 12.7 million plan selections through the Health Insurance Marketplaces. In Oregon, 147,109 were enrolled in a plan through the HealthCare.gov platform. These figures extend through 11:59pm EST on Monday, February 1, instead of through the January 31 deadline, to better capture consumers who may have been in line.

“Open Enrollment for 2016 is over and we are happy to report it was a success,” said U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell. “The Health Insurance Marketplace is changing people’s lives for the better. Across the country, about 12.7 million Americans selected affordable, quality health plans for 2016 coverage, exceeding our goals. That includes over 4 million new consumers in the HealthCare.gov states who signed-up for coverage this year. The Marketplace is growing and getting stronger and the ACA has become a crucial part of healthcare in America.”
