Americans Concerned About Future of Health Insurance

Article

Only 9% of those with employer coverage are not confident about the future of their health insurance.

Thirty-six percent of Americans who have health coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and 27% of those with Medicaid are pessimistic they will be able to keep their future coverage, according to a new Commonwealth Fund survey of 2410 adults.

Nearly half cite actions by the Trump administration or Congress to undermine the ACA as the main source of their worry.

The nationally representative survey of adults ages 19-64 also found that regardless of political affiliation, most believed all Americans should have the right to affordable healthcare. Those agreeing with that sentiment included 99% of Democrats, 92% of independent voters, and 82% of Republicans.
