Affordable Care Act marketplace enrollment has climbed to 21.3 million during the annual open enrollment period, which ended in most states after Jan. 15 but continues through Jan. 31 in four states and Washington, D.C. Even with more signups to be counted, however, marketplace enrollment has climbed “nearly 5 million people higher” than the total number tallied during last year’s open enrollment. Biden administration officials credited the availability of enhanced subsidies for marketplace enrollees, which were first enacted under the American Rescue Plan Act and extended through 2025 by the Inflation Reduction Act, and increased investment in Navigator programs that help consumers find the right coverage. There were 17,722,797 exchange enrollees as of the third quarter of 2023, according to AIS’s Directory of Health Plans.
