Our November healthinsurance.com survey honed in on a number of timely topics amidst a busy time of year both inside and outside of the health insurance arena.
Survey topics included:
Our survey uncovered that 83% of our respondents are satisfied with their current health insurance plans, while 17% are not satisfied with their plans due to costs, specifically with high monthly premiums, copays or deductibles. Others cited expensive prescription costs or their doctors being out of network as reasons they aren’t happy with their health insurance plans.
We also asked respondents to name the one thing they wish they could change about their health insurance plans. Here’s what they said.
The 2021 open enrollment period for Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) plans is happening now through December 15, 2020.
With this in mind, we asked survey participants about this fall enrollment period: 28% are likely to change their health insurance plans, while 22% are unsure of if they will change their plans. The remaining 50% will not make any changes during the ACA open enrollment period.
Our survey also asked respondents to weigh in on ACA plan impacts in light of potential Supreme Court rulings.
Like the ACA open enrollment period, the 2021 Medicare Open Enrollment Period (also known as the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period) is underway, so our survey checked in to see if people plan to make any changes.
Turns out, 42% of our respondents age 65 and up are considering changing their Medicare coverage during the Medicare Open Enrollment period.
We also asked respondents under age 65 about Medicare coverage and concerns they have for their parents.
With the holidays quickly approaching and COVID-19 cases on the rise, we asked respondents about their holiday and shopping plans.
