Adults Who Would Be Most Affected by ACA Repeal Support Keeping Core ACA Provisions

Abstract

This brief uses data from the March 2017 Health Reform Monitoring Survey to examine consumers’ awareness of the potential for Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal, their support for keeping or repealing ACA provisions, and their likelihood of dropping coverage if the individual mandate were eliminated. We found widespread support for retaining 7 of 8 key ACA provisions, both among those who benefited most under the ACA and those who could face lower premiums under repeal. The individual mandate garnered the least support. Nearly one-third of younger and healthier adults with nongroup insurance said they would be likely to drop their coverage.
