The state health insurance exchange continued enrolling consumers in Medicaid, adding almost 22,000 new people to the rolls in the last month, according to a report released Friday.
The report said 376,850 people in the state have gained coverage under the federal-state program for the low-income since the exchange launched a year ago under the federal Affordable Care Act.
Another 2,425 people bought private insurance plans in the last month, though the open enrollment period is closed. Only those with a family or work change are eligible to enroll now.
Altogether, 81,091 people have bought private coverage through the exchange.
People who want to renew policies – and keep their federal subsidies – or sign up for new coverage will be able to begin the process Nov. 15. The exchange has laid out a staged plan that initially limits access to a newly revamped system.
The old system, plagued with technical problems, will be retired.
Browsing for plans will be allowed beginning Nov. 9.
Open enrollment ends on Feb. 15.
