Just over 528,000 people selected a 2021 health plan through the federally facilitated marketplace between Feb. 15 and March 31 during the special enrollment period created in response to the COVID-19 emergency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reported today.

The total includes selections by state for the 36 states that use the federally facilitated marketplace. CMS plans to update the report monthly during the SEP, which runs through Aug. 15.

For resources to help promote the SEP, see the Get Covered 2021 digital toolkit.

AHA is a member of the non-partisan Get Covered 2021 coalition, which works to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and expand coverage.
