It’s reported that 10,157 customers had enrolled in a qualified health plan, 37,055 had called the AHCT call center for help and 61,877 had visited its website as of Nov. 10.

“Despite the confusion in the news, we’re seeing lots of consumer engagement and that’s really encouraging,” Wadleigh said. “We are finding the volume of customers renewing into a 2018 policy or buying a new policy is trending 15 percent higher than last year at this time.”

As previously reported, to help consumers sign up during this year’s shortened open enrollment period, AHCT has expanded its community outreach to include 10 enrollment locations and five enrollment fairs, offering consumers more access to free, in-person help.

The open enrollment period ends on Dec. 22 for coverage that begins on Jan. 1, 2018.
