<p>By releasing more of the health plan enrollment data they gather, the state-based marketplaces established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) could improve oversight of insurance markets and help policymakers more easily identify areas where consumers could be better served. </p><p>In a new blog post, Georgetown University’s Sean Miskell, Justin Giovannelli, and Kevin Lucia,
explain that some of the 17 state-based marketplaces have made public very little data about enrollment by insurance carrier or health plan, or information on enrollee demographics.</p>
<p>Noting the value of greater transparency, the authors say that “more and better data could only help marketplaces and stakeholders cover more people and ensure that consumers are getting the coverage that is right for them.”</p>
