HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Many of the people who've so far signed up for health insurance plans on Connecticut's new online marketplace are middle-aged and older adults.
Of those older enrollees, most are buying private insurance coverage through the marketplace, known as Access Health CT. Among younger enrollees, people ranging from less than 18 to 34 years old, most are qualifying for the government-funded Medicaid program.
Access Health CT officials on Thursday released their most comprehensive analysis to date of the 3,847 individuals who've enrolled since Oct. 1 and through Tuesday. They won't be official, however, until Access Health forwards their data to the insurance companies.
So far it appears Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is the most popular choice among people enrolling in private plans, comprising 67 percent of the total enrollment.
