2012 AARP Survey of Minnesota Registered Voters Ages 30-64 on the Development of a State Health Insurance Exchange

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.

In addition:
• 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.
