Survey of Non-Group Health Insurance Enrollees, Wave 2: Findings
- Throughout this report, “ACA-compliant plans” refers to plans purchased after January 1, 2014, while “non-ACA-compliant plans” are those purchased before that date.
- Non-group enrollees are able to purchase Marketplace plans through a health insurance broker or directly through an insurance company. In some states, large shares of non-group enrollees used a broker to enroll in a Marketplace plan
- Those who say they are employed part time were not asked whether their employer offered a health plan to employees. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, less than a quarter of those employed part time in the private sector have access to employer-provided health insurance (http://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2014/article/trends-in-employment-based-health-insurance-coverage.htm).
- Previous insurance status refers to coverage immediately prior to purchasing current plan.

- Those who’ve had their plans for fewer than 12 months were excluded from this analysis, since problems reported by these individuals may have occurred when they were uninsured or covered by a different plan.
- Those who likely received a tax credit includes anyone with Marketplace coverage who says they received financial help from the government to pay their health insurance premium, as well as anyone who says their premium is based on their income.
