Application activity for the state’s health insurance exchange has skyrocketed this week, with close to 1,000 people signing up for coverage each day.
That compares to a previous peak of 3,544 enrollees for the entire week before Thanksgiving.
“The surge is now,” said Peter Van Loon, chief operating officer for the exchange, known as Access Health CT. He noted that the exchange’s call center has been getting an average of 2,400 calls per day this week.
