Affordable Care Act Tracking Surveys

This series of Commonwealth Fund surveys tracks the implementation and impact of the Affordable Care Act's coverage expansions.

Overall, the majority of marketplace enrollees expressed confidence in their ability to afford care if they were to become seriously ill.

Commonwealth Fund Affordable Care Act Tracking Survey, March–June 2017

The uninsured rate among 19-to-64-year-old adults was 14 percent in 2017, or an estimated 27 million people, statistically unchanged from one year earlier. Uninsured rates ticked up significantly in three subgroups: 35-to-49-year-olds, adults with incomes of 400 percent of poverty or more (about $48,000 for an individual), and adults living in states that had not expanded Medicaid.
