This Data Point presents changes in HealthCare.gov enrollment by race and ethnicity from 2015-2022 using a validated imputation method for missing information on race and ethnicity. It finds that enrollment for all racial and ethnic groups increased from 2020 to 2022, with the number of Black and Latino enrollees in Marketplace coverage experiencing the largest increases in enrollment (49 percent and 53 percent, respectively). This suggests that outreach efforts and increased coverage affordability under the American Rescue Plan played an important role in increasing Marketplace enrollment among these beneficiaries and making progress in decreasing Marketplace coverage disparities by race and ethnicity.
