Access Health CT has enrolled 8,515 new members in qualified health plans since open enrollment began Nov. 1, according to the latest statistics from the state healthcare exchange.

That brings the total number of people actively covered through 2016 and for the upcoming 2017 year to 102,096, AHCT CEO James Wadleigh said Wednesday. The new enrollees were not enrolled in 2016, AHCT said.

AHCT also answered 88,717 calls, had 144,131 unique website visitors, and 25,995 completed Medicaid applications, Wadleigh said.

Wadleigh reminds anyone considering enrolling that, despite potential changes to the Affordable Care Act, no changes have been implemented for the 2017 year as yet and it's "business as usual."

Open enrollment lasts through Jan. 31.
