As part of the Obama Administration’s efforts to make healthcare system more transparent, affordable, and accountable, the Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics, within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has prepared public datasets to provide the total number of health plan selections by county for the 38 states that use the HealthCare.gov platform, including the Federally-facilitated Marketplace, State Partnership Marketplaces, and supported State-based Marketplaces. The data sets for county-level plan selection information cut by age, race/ethnicity, Federal Poverty Level (FPL), consumer type, metal level, Cost-Sharing Reduction (CSR), and Applied Premium Tax Credit (APTC) are made available. Plan selections occurred during the open enrollment period from November 15, 2014 through February 15, 2015, including additional special enrollment period activity reported through February 22, 2015.
Data were obtained from the Multi-Dimensional Insurance Data Analytics System (MIDAS), which serves as a central repository for capturing, organizing, aggregating, and analyzing CMS’s Marketplace data. The data represent the number of unique individuals who have been determined eligible to enroll in a Qualified Health Plan and have selected a Marketplace plan for 2015. The dataset does not include plan selections from the District of Columbia and the 12 states that have State-based Marketplaces.
The 9.63 million plan selections for these 38 states were aggregated by county according to the home address provided by each Marketplace applicant. There are 2,601 counties represented in this dataset. Metrics with 10 or fewer plan selections were suppressed due to privacy concerns. Counties without any data on total plan selections (i.e., counties with 10 or fewer plan selections in total) accounted for less than 0.1 percent of the total 9.63 million plan selections, although a higher share of plan selections were suppressed for individual metrics. The percentages of total plan selections suppressed for other metrics were: 0.2 percent for plan selections by APTC; less than 0.1 percent for total plan selections by CSR; 0.4 percent for plan selections by metal level; less than 0.1 percent for plan selections by consumer type; 0.3 percent for plan selections by Federal Poverty Level (FPL); 0.3 percent for plan selections by race/ ethnicity; and 0.3 percent for plan selections by age category.
The variables include:
County: The County FIPS Code for the home address provided by the Marketplace applicant.
State: The state of residence selected by the Marketplace applicant.
Plan Selections: The total number of unique individuals who have a non-canceled plan selection with March 2016 coverage for the 38 states that use the HealthCare.gov platform, including the Federally-facilitated Marketplace, State Partnership Marketplaces and supported State-based Marketplaces. Plan selections occurred during the open enrollment period from November 15, 2014 through February 15, 2015, including additional special enrollment period activity reported through February 22, 2015.
Race: A consumer self-reports race/ ethnicity when selecting a plan. This field is not mandatory. A hierarchy for determining the best race value was applied to the data. If a consumer with a populated ethnicity variable selected his or her ethnicity as “Cuban”, “Mexican, Mexican American, or Chicano/a” or “Puerto Rican”, or “Other Ethnicity” then the consumer was classified as “Latino”. If a consumer was not Latino and selected more than one distinct race type, then he or she was classified as ”Multiracial”. If a consumer was not Latino and selected only one race type, he or she was classified under that race. Otherwise, a consumer’s race/ethnicity was classified as “Unknown”.
