Survey: At Least 8.5M U.S. Residents Will Purchase Health Coverage Through Exchanges
At least 8.5 million U.S. residents will purchase coverage through the Affordable Care Act's health insurance exchanges, according to a USA Today survey that used estimates from 19 states, including California. The states said they based their estimates on how many individuals lack health coverage who are unlikely to receive insurance through an employer, predictions from insurers in the state and conversations with HHS about reasonable coverage goals.
