More than two-thirds of Obamacare enrollees unsatisfied with coverage: survey

Less than a third of Obamacare exchange customers are satisfied with their plans, according to a survey released Monday that finds enrollees in the signature heath overhaul are less happy than those covered through government programs or their jobs.


Researchers at Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, a research arm of the consulting firm, said cost is a key driver in their findings, which say 30 percent of exchange customers are satisfied with their plans, compared to nearly half of those on the Medicaid program for the poor, 58 percent on Medicare for seniors and the disabled and 42 percent with coverage from their jobs.


The Affordable Care Act of 2010 set up web-based marketplaces, or exchanges, where customers can compare plans and purchase coverage, often with the help of income-based government subsidies.


A recent Supreme Court decision said those subsidies should be paid to qualified customers making between 100 and 400 percent of the federal poverty level no matter where they live, despite contested language in a key section of the law.


As Obamacare nears its third signup period this fall, Deloitte says customers are better off than their uninsured counterparts but unhappy compared to people who hold other types of insurance.


“The exchanges have improved access to care, but affordability remains a problem,” the Deloitte report said. “Enrollees report getting care they may not have been able to afford without their [exchange] coverage and are connecting with primary care providers at twice the rate of the uninsured.”
