WASHINGTON, DC – Last week Enroll America released the results of a survey conducted by PerryUndem that – along with a wide range of other questions – examined for the first time how those who enrolled during the first Affordable Care Act open enrollment period feel about their new insurance. As illustrated in the infographic below, the survey found that new enrollees are happy with their coverage and confident about paying their premiums:
The survey results showed:
- The newly enrolled are four times more likely to say they are happy with their coverage than unhappy (41% to 11%).
- 74% of new enrollees were very or somewhat confident they would be able to pay their premiums moving forward.
- The feeling that best expresses how the newly enrolled feel about having health insurance is “relieved” (47%).
- 56% percent of the newly enrolled believe their plan has enough doctors and providers to choose from; only 13% feel there are not enough doctors.
