CMS: Thousands select plan in first two weeks of special enrollment period

More than 206,000 people selected a 2021 health plan through the federally facilitated marketplace Feb. 15-28, the first two weeks of a special enrollment period created in response to the COVID-19 emergency, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reports.

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 May 15.
