AARP New York commissioned a telephone survey of 400 registered voters ages 30 to 64 to gauge their opinion about the development of a health insurance exchange.
Results from this February 2012 survey show three out of five registered voters in New York ages 30 to 64 support the Governor’s plan to create a health insurance exchange, which is estimated to provide coverage for 1 million uninsured New Yorkers and reduce the cost of insurance for small businesses and those who are self-insured, with no cost to the State.
In addition, nearly two-thirds indicate it should be a top or high priority for the State Legislature to pass a budget this year that includes the Governor’s health insurance exchange.
Ths survey was fielded between February 18 to March 1, 2012 with 400 registered voters age 30 to 64 in New York. For more information, contact Kate Bridges at 202-434-6329.
