Obamacare Customers Are Generally Happy

A new Commonwealth Fund survey finds that people who signed up to purchase health insurance through the Obamacare exchanges are pleased with their purchases.

New York Times: "It found that about 15 percent of adults younger than 65 now lack health insurance, down from 20 percent before the Affordable Care Act rolled out in January. What was more surprising is that people who got the new coverage were generally happy with the product. Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance. Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before -- including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year -- were happy with their new coverage."
