Most U.S. Residents Support ACA Subsidies in Both State, Federal Exchanges, Poll Finds
A majority of U.S. residents say all eligible enrollees should have access to subsidies to help them purchase coverage through the health insurance exchanges, regardless if they live in a state that has established its own exchange, according to a Morning Consult survey released Tuesday. Overall, the survey found that 58% of respondents said U.S. residents purchasing coverage in both state- and federally run exchanges should have access to the subsidies. Meanwhile, 15% said not all U.S. residents should have access to the subsidies, and 27% offered no opinion.
