The majority of online health insurance exchanges operated by states have outperformed Healthcare.gov, their federal counterpart. The exchanges of Connecticut, Kentucky, Rhode Island, and Washington State have websites that have run particularly well, serving as models for states that intend to launch their own sites in 2014, including Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, and New Mexico. Collectively, the 14 exchanges run by states and the District of Columbia accounted for more than half of all Medicaid enrollments and 75 percent of private insurance sign-ups in October, according to the federal government’s most recent enrollment report.
