Connecticut’s health insurance exchange fell just little shy of the 200,000 residents they expected to enroll by midnight Monday.

Access Health CT announced Tuesday that it has enrolled 197,878 residents in plans with private insurance carriers and government-funded Medicaid.

“Yesterday was a record day for health care enrollment in Connecticut, with 5,917 residents enrolling in quality, affordable health care coverage through the exchange,” Access Health CT CEO Kevin Counihan said in a statement.

But their work isn’t done. They said they have received 5,365 voicemail messages from customers with questions about their application. There were also approximately 5,000 individuals who were in line at the retail stores or at one of the health centers or online trying to sign up before the midnight deadline.

“We will work diligently to follow up with everyone who left a voicemail yesterday or visited one of the in-person enrollment locations to ensure their application is complete for coverage beginning May 1,” Counihan said.

Of the 197,878 Access Health enrollees, an estimated 76,597 enrolled with private insurance carriers and 121,281 were enrolled in Medicaid.

Incredible.  Let’s see the other side try to take this away.
