N.H. Enrollment In ACA Marketplace Plans Tops 11,000

After a slow start, December saw a surge in the number of New Hampshire residents shopping for health insurance on the new exchange. The federal government reports nearly 10,000 consumers in the state selected a plan between Dec. 1 and Dec. 28.

In total, about 11,500 people selected a plan during the first three months of open enrollment, which runs through March 31. 

One important demographic to watch are the so-called young invincibles, as people between 18 and 34 were traditionally more likely to go without coverage. In New Hampshire, they accounted for 22% of enrollees through December.
