Understanding the Uninsured Now
Research Jun-01-2015 | 1-min read
In order to get a full picture of the lives of the uninsured and explore their feelings around enrolling in health insurance, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation commissioned a national survey, conducted by PerryUndem and GMMB, with uninsured adults at the conclusion of the second open enrollment period for the health insurance marketplace.
Most uninsured individuals value health insurance and many have been actively trying to get it on their own. However, they feel it is out of reach financially right now.
Most of the uninsured population values health insurance but many see cost as a barrier. Research findings point to the need for education around the tax credit and the increasing penalty for not having insurance.
This report presents the findings from a national survey of 1,270 uninsured adults, ages 18 to 64, fielded May 5 through May 17, 2015. The margin of error is +/- 3.4 percentage points. Methodology, survey toplines and the full public use data set are also available.
