The Week 12 snapshot includes a look at plan section by selected Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). This localized data provides another level of detail to better understand total plan selections within local communities ahead of the February 15 deadline. Eight of the MSAs include one or more counties in states that are not using the platform in 2015. Plan selections for those MSAs only include data for the portions of these areas that are using the platform, so the cumulative totals in the snapshot do not represent plan selections for the entire MSA. The affected areas are italicized below, and additional information is included in the glossary. Only MSAs with a minimum population of about 725,000 and at least one county in the 37 states using the platform are included in the Local Area Snapshot.

Those areas showing the fastest rate of growth between Week 11 and Week 12 include El Paso, TX (7 percent), Baton Rouge, LA (7 percent), McAllen, TX (7 percent) and Las Vegas, NV (6 percent).
