Number of Arizonans with federal marketplace health insurance plans drops 11,000 to 154,000


PHOENIX — The number of Arizonans who have health insurance plans purchased on the federal marketplace dropped by about 11,000 between March and June.

The enrollment figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Health & Human Services Department show just over 154,000 people paid for individual policies bought on the federal marketplace as of June 30. Three months previously that number topped 165,000.

The enrollment is still 64 percent above enrollment on Dec. 31.

Federal statistics show that 76 percent of the insured received tax subsidies to help pay their premiums. The average subsidy in Arizona was $159 per month.

Nationally, 9.9 million consumers were paying for policies and 84 percent were receiving subsidies.
