Roughly a quarter of individuals who purchased health plans on and off state and federal exchanges were previously uninsured, according to the latest survey results from the McKinsey Center for U.S. Health System Reform.
That figure is essentially unchanged from the research firm's last nationwide poll conducted in February of individuals who are eligible to purchase plans through the exchanges.
The McKinsey survey also found that 87% of respondents who had enrolled in coverage indicated that they had made their first premium payments. That was up from 77% in the February poll and aligns with figures that some large insurance companies have released.
However, younger enrollees were less likely to follow through with premium payments, with 78% of 18- to 29-year-old respondents reporting that they had paid their first bill.
