The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released final summary enrollment data on April 3, 2018, for the fifth open enrollment period of the federally facilitated health insurance marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The open enrollment period lasted from November 1, 2017-December 15, 2017 (with a run-out period until December 23, 2017). During that time, a total of 98,238 Kansans had selected a health insurance plan or had been automatically re-enrolled for the 2018 plan year through the marketplace. During that time, a total of 14,499 Kansans also selected a standalone dental insurance plan for 2018 through the marketplace. Information is not yet available on how many Kansans have paid their premiums and are actually covered by the insurance plans they selected (effectuated enrollment).

The Kansas Health Institute has prepared statewide maps showing marketplace enrollment.

    • Marketplace enrollment by county for health insurance
    • Marketplace enrollment by zip code for health insurance
    • Marketplace enrollment by county for dental plans

In addition, maps of marketplace enrollment by zip code are available for ten populous counties in Kansas:

    • Johnson County
    • Leavenworth County
    • Reno County
    • Saline County
    • Sedgwick County
