In its continued efforts to be a strong voice for all consumers of health care, AARP Minnesota commissioned a telephone survey of 800 registered voters ages 30 to 64 to gauge their opinion about the development of a health insurance exchange issues.
Results from this February 2012 survey show about three-quarters of registered voters in Minnesota ages 30-64 support the creation of a health insurance exchange in the state, and most think it is important that Minnesota develops its own exchange instead of the federal government setting it up for the state.
• 64% of Minnesotans ages 30 to 64 who are registered to vote are concerned they won’t be able to maintain their current health care coverage over the next five years.
• 83% of respondents feel the Governor and state legislators should work to ensure that all Minnesotans have access to affordable health care coverage.
• 74% want consumers to make up the majority of the governing board.
This survey was fielded February 14 to February 29, 2012, and a total of 800 interviews were completed. For more information, contact, Kate Bridges at 202-434-6329.
