HealthSherpa continues to be the largest private channel for ACA enrollments in the US, insuring over 5 million people for 2023 and growing more than 50% year over year
HealthSherpa has enrolled more than 5 million people to date in Plan Year 2023 coverage and enrolled about HALF of all new Affordable Care Act enrollees in Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) states during Open Enrollment. HealthSherpa now accounts for 35% of all FFM enrollments and volume grew more than 50% year over year, far outpacing the ACA Marketplace as a whole which grew only 13% (1)
HealthSherpa’s strong local agent network is able to scalably bring in new enrollees. 35% of HealthSherpa enrollees were new to the Marketplace, nearly double the rate for Healthcare.gov (19%) and more than 2x the rate for State Based Marketplaces (15%) (2). Even better, most people found a plan for $3/month or less (88% lower than last year).
