The most recent public polling on topics such as the popularity of the healthcare law, its impact on the medical profession, health costs, and more.
A majority of registered voters want Congress to repeal or reform Obamacare’s so-called “Cadillac tax” on employers that offer expensive, more generous health-insurance plans for their workers.
A new Morning Consult poll shows 34 percent of registered voters want Congress to repeal the tax, and 31 percent want it changed to prevent out-of-pocket costs from rising too high. Fifteen percent support the tax without modifications, and 19 percent say they are unsure or have no opinion.
The poll from the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, the research arm of the consulting firm, finds that 30 percent of people with insurance through ObamaCare’s marketplaces are satisfied with their plans.
Five years after Obamacare became law, uninsured rates have fallen to historic lows, but attitudes on the Affordable Care Act remain mostly stagnant and entrenched along party lines.
The latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that following the Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell, a case challenging the legality of health insurance subsidies in states with federally operated exchanges under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), public attention to the case inched up, though many Americans remain tuned out amid other breaking news stories.
When it comes to health care reform, voters continue to think an overall reduction in costs is more important than guaranteeing that everyone has insurance — but they would prefer that the government keep their hands off and leave it up to some healthy competition to solve the problem.
Views on President Barack Obama’s federal health-care law remain unchanged ahead of an upcoming Supreme Court decision that could potentially gut the law, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
The Foundation for Government Accountability commissioned a poll of 715 ObamaCare exchange enrollees. All enrollees surveyed live in one of the 34 states that are using the HealthCare.gov ObamaCare exchange. Based on their reported income, the vast majority of these enrollees are eligible for subsidies and, as a result, many of these enrollees could be personally impacted by the Supreme Court’s forthcoming King v. Burwell decision.
Later this month, the Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling in the case of King v. Burwell, a challenge to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) with potentially major consequences for millions of Americans who have received health insurance under the law’s coverage expansion provisions.
Most feel that Congress and states should act if the Court rules for the plaintiffs, but there is no agreement among partisans. Opinion on the law overall remains divided, with 42 percent of the public reporting an unfavorable view and 39 percent reporting a favorable one, statistically unchanged from when we last asked the question in April.
Most Americans have not been paying close attention to King v. Burwell. A majority continue to say that the Affordable Care Act has not had an effect on them or their family, although the proportion that believes it has hurt and, separately, helped has risen. Views of the ACA remain more negative than positive.
