These data come from the Health Reform Monitoring Survey in New Jersey (HRMS-NJ), a New Jersey supplement of a nationally representative survey conducted by the Urban Institute. A quarterly survey of the nonelderly, it is designed to provide timely information on implementation issues under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and changes in health insurance coverage and related health outcomes.
The second quarter 2014 survey was completed in June.
These findings are consistent with national trends that have shown an increase in the coverage rate among nonelderly adults, which have been reported widely elsewhere. This upward trend has been confirmed by the recent release of a preliminary 2014 estimate from the National Health Insurance Survey.
