2019 County-Level Enrollment in the Kansas Health Insurance Marketplace (April 2019)

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released final summary enrollment data on March 25, 2019, for the sixth 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, 2018, to December 15, 2018. During that time, a total of 89,993 Kansans selected a health insurance plan or had automatically been re-enrolled for the 2019 plan year through the marketplace. A total of 13,558 Kansans selected a standalone dental insurance plan for 2019 through the marketplace. Information is not yet available on how many Kansans have paid their premiums and actually are covered by the insurance plans they selected (effectuated enrollment).  

The Kansas Health Institute has prepared statewide maps showing 2019 marketplace enrollment in Kansas.

In addition, maps of 2019 Kansas marketplace enrollment by ZIP code for health insurance are available for 10 populous counties in Kansas:
