    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Nationwide, enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace surged to eight million at the end of the first enrollment period, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today. In Utah alone, 84,601 individuals selected a Marketplace plan. The final enrollment reporting period spans from October 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014, and includes “in line” and other enrollment activity (such as people enrolling due to a change in life circumstance) reported through Saturday, April 19, 2014.

    HHS also announced today that an additional 10,384 Utah residents enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP through the end of March 2014, compared to enrollment before the Marketplace opened last October. Utah has not decided to expand Medicaid coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

    “More than 84,601 Utah residents signed up through the Marketplace, demonstrating brisk demand for quality, affordable coverage,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “Together we are ensuring that health coverage is more accessible than ever before, which is important for families, for businesses and for Utah’s health and wellbeing.”

    Key findings from today’s report include:

    • 84,601 Utah residents selected Marketplace plans from October 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014, (including additional Special Enrollment Period activity through April 19th).
