The state-based exchanges in California and Connecticut have posted more enrollment data.

Covered California managers said they’ll wait until December to give actual November numbers. But 57,354 residents started applications from Nov. 9 through Nov. 16, officials said.

Covered California averaged about 46,000 application starts per week from Oct. 1, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act exchange open enrollment period started, through Nov. 8.

The number of exchange agents certified has jumped to 6,714, from 5,685 a week earlier, while the number of enrollment counselors certified increased to 1,408, from 1,043.

At Access Health CT, managers fleshed out data collected as of the close of business Nov. 14.

The exchange has enrolled a total of 13,128 people in private qualified health plans and Medicaid plans.

About 60 percent of the applicants are on track to have QHP coverage in 2014, and 61 percent are ages 45 to 64, officials said.

Anthem, a unit of WellPoint Inc., has attracted 62 percent of the enrollees.

HealthyCT, one of the new nonprofit, member-owned CO-OP plans, has attracted 2.4 percent of the enrollees.
