First, thank you for letting usknow the press release is going out today. Our number of 249,199 reflects the people affected by cancellationnotices based on data provided by the carriers. You are correct that Coloradans affected by these cancellationswere provided options and some of them chose early renewals. However, the early renewals were one optionpresented along with the options to purchase a different plan from the same carrier or purchase a plan from adifferent carrier, both inside or outside Connect for Health Colorado. We required carriers to provide all theseoptions as part of their cancellation notices. Also, many people affected by the cancellation notices have notchosen an early renewal.We continue to collect additional data and the numbers continue to change as people find the health insuranceoptions they need. We are also evaluating the President's announcement to see how it may or may not changethe Colorado health insurance market landscape. We will keep you abreast of any further developments as we continue through the open enrollment period.Thanks for staying in touch.
