Sacramento-Region Enrollment Figures Through Jan. 31 Released By Covered California

Covered California™ and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) announced today that from Oct. 1, 2013, to Jan. 31, 2014, under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, 38,507 consumers in four Sacramento-region counties enrolled in subsidized and non-subsidized Covered California health insurance plans. The new total represents a 41 percent increase from the 27,227 enrollments recorded through Dec. 31.

The four-month total also represents 134 percent of the base projection of 28,726 enrollments Covered California estimated for the region during the entire six-month enrollment period, which ends March 31 (see the table attached).

The impressive pace of enrollments in the Sacramento region is due in part to enhanced aspects of Covered California’s customer service. The agency has increased staff to answer consumer calls, added phone lines, improved its website efficiency, expanded its live Web chat function and upgraded its Spanish-language Web pages.

The Sacramento-region counties of Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer and Yolo represent about 5 percent of the statewide enrollment thus far. The local total includes 34,075 consumers eligible for financial subsidies. These counties encompass Covered California pricing region 3.

For the four-month period, which is two-thirds of the open-enrollment period for 2014 coverage, 728,410 consumers enrolled in plans statewide.
