Health Insurance Coverage and Affordability Data Analysis

Due to their significant health needs and ineligibility for Medicare, near-elderly Americans often face unique affordability challenges that affect access to care. KNG Health is supporting AARP in studying how coverage availability and healthcare costs for this population differ from other age cohorts, with a special focus on enrollees in the non-group health insurance market. Specifically, we combined a variety of household surveys and administrative data sources to develop enrollment and health insurance premium estimates for both on- and off-Marketplace plans, as well as for small group market enrollees. These estimates will be distributed publicly via AARP’s web-based DataExplorer platform. In addition, we are collaborating with AARP to use these findings to create fact sheets and reports aimed at improving public awareness of health care affordability challenges faced by near-elderly Americans.
