As of December 31, 2021, approximately 305 million people received medical coverage from U.S. health insurers. This number is up from 297.5 million, or approximately 7.6 million additional members, from a year ago. Between 4Q20 and 4Q21, membership growth was significant for the individual market as this segment gained approximately 1.9 million more members, year-over-year. In addition, the Medicare Advantage and Medicaid markets also experienced notable membership increases. The Employer-group risk and Employer-group ASO (administrative services only for self-funded plans) segments provide the largest sources of coverage in the industry, however, these segments, combined, continued to demonstrate year-over-year membership declines.
