The state-based Affordable Care Act public exchange in Colorado is selling more health coverage this year, and it’s getting more of its business from brokers.
Connect for Health Colorado says it had placed 140,820 people in paid-up individual or small-group major medical coverage by March 7, according to a new report. The number of effectuated enrollees was up from 125,514, according to an earlier report, based on figures recorded March 10, 2016.
The number of brokers working with the exchange fell 17 percent, to 961.
But the Colorado brokers who are still selling exchange coverage sold more of this year.
The number of people on applications that came in through brokers increased 61 percent, to 97,377.
The average number of submitted lives per broker increased to 101, per 52 last year.
