To date, 343,628 new customers have signed up for coverage, and 1,278,478 have renewed their coverage.

CMS notes that Pennsylvania and New Jersey are no longer participating in HealthCare.gov and have instead moved to their own state-based exchanges, with residents of those states accounting for 578,251 sign-ups, or 7%, of the total for open enrollment in 2020.
