The Commonwealth Fund 2016 Biennial Health Insurance Survey


The Commonwealth Fund Biennial Health Insurance Survey, conducted every two years since 2001, provides a population-wide assessment of changes in continuity of people’s health coverage, affordability of plans and care, rates of underinsurance, cost-related access to care, and medical bill and debt problems. The 2016 biennial survey will be fielded in the second half of 2016 to assess effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in the third year of the law’s coverage expansions and to explore overall trends in Americans’ insurance coverage. The survey will be designed to collect responses from a nationally representative sample of 6,000 adults age 19 and older, along with an oversample of approximately 1,800 residents of the four most populous states (California, Texas, New York, and Florida). As in 2014, the oversample will allow us to assess whether people’s experiences vary depending on where they live.
