Taking a Better Look at the ACA in 2016 [Infographic]

With open enrollment season upon us, its no better time to reflect on the success that the Affordable Care Act has brought us in 2016.

For starters, this year’s enrollment met predictions made by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), and surpassed those set by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services.
According to Kevin Counihan (@kcoun), CMS’ Chief Executive Officer of the Marketplace and Director of CCIIO, brokers and agents played a significant role in this achievement, enrolling nearly half of all Marketplace enrollments this year [1]:

  • Nearly half of all marketplace applications last year were recorded using alternative enrollment platforms (26% insurance company website & 23% Web Broker (WBE) websites) [1]; [2]
  • Brokers assisted an average of 110 consumers with applications for marketplace coverage [3]; and
  • 55% of brokers surveyed agreed that OE3 outperformed OE2 in overall results [4].
