Health Reform Monitoring Survey – Texas, Issue Brief #18: Why were 20% of Adult Texans Uninsured in 2015?
In September 2015, just before the third open enrollment period of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace was about to open, we surveyed Texans ages 18 to 64 to understand the reasons why the uninsured population remained uninsured two years after the implementation of the ACA’s , major insurance coverage provisions. We looked at the group of uninsured as a whole and by demographic subgroups including race/ethnicity and age. Our analysis shows that for the full group of uninsured adults, the overwhelming reason cited for remaining uninsured because they did not want health insurance, and even fewer cited lack of information as a reason.
