How Many Nongroup Policies Were Canceled? Estimates from December 2013

Abstract

In fall 2013, media reported consumer discontent over "cancellation" notices of health insurance policies not meeting new minimum standards under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), but it's difficult to determine exactly how many were affected. Findings from the December 2013 Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS) show that nearly 1 in 5 (18.6 percent) with nongroup health insurance at the time of the survey report the plan they had in 2013 will no longer be offered to them because it did not meet the ACA's standards. Over half are likely to be eligible for coverage assistance under the ACA.
