  3. Throughout this report, individuals in Marketplace plans are those who say they purchased their plan from a state or federal Marketplace, those who report purchasing a Marketplace plan from an insurance broker or agent or directly from an insurance company, and those who say they are receiving an advance premium tax credit or that their premium is reduced based on their income.

  6. Among current Marketplace enrollees who had non-group coverage in 2015, 35 percent report switching plans in 2016. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that 43 percent of consumers re-enrolling in Marketplace coverage in HealthCare.gov states switched plans. The difference between these two estimates is likely due to the fact that the survey data are self-reported while the HHS is using administrative records in reporting.
