  • Abstract

    This survey interviewed adults ages 18-64 with private health insurance - health insurance received through an employer or union or purchased directly from an insurance company or through a state or federal marketplace or exchange -- about the characteristics of their health care insurance coverage, their health care utilization and their views on the price of health care, how health costs impact their health care utilization decisions and the extent to which other aspects of their lives are affected by health care costs. Other topics covered by the survey include satisfaction with one's current health insurance plan, problems experienced with health care under the current plan and the importance of various plan attributes in choosing a health plan. The survey also collected information on overall health status and socio-demographic characteristics, such age, sex, marital status, education, employment status, income, race and Hispanic origin.
