Majority of Enrollees Are Satisfied With Their Obamacare Plans

Kaiser Family Foundation: “Following the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period, most people enrolled in marketplace plans report being satisfied with a wide range of their plan’s coverage and features, finds a new Kaiser Family Foundation survey of people who buy their own health insurance.”

“A large majority (74%) of those in marketplace plans rate their coverage as excellent or good, the survey finds. Most (59%) also say their plan is an excellent or good value for what they pay for it, though the share rating the value as ‘excellent’ declined somewhat from 23 percent last year to 15 percent in the current survey.”

“In spite of high overall satisfaction levels, a significant minority of enrollees report challenges and worries related to the affordability of coverage and care.”

“The survey finds most (57%) of those in ACA-compliant plans feel financially well-protected by their insurance, though nearly four in ten (38%) feel vulnerable to high medical bills.  A similar share (34%) of those with non-compliant plans reports feeling vulnerable to high medical bills, as do 28 percent of people with employer coverage interviewed as part of a separate survey.”
