  • From September 2013 to February 2015, 22.8 million Americans became newly insured and 5.9 million lost coverage, for a net gain of 16.9 million more insured.
  • Among those newly gaining coverage, 9.6 million people enrolled in employer-sponsored health plans, followed by Medicaid (6.5 million), the individual marketplaces (4.1 million), non-marketplace individual plans (1.2 million) and other insurance sources (1.5 million).
  • Among the 12.6 million Americans newly enrolled in Medicaid, 6.5 million were previously uninsured and 6.1 million were previously insured.
  • An estimated 11.2 million Americans are now insured through new state and federal marketplaces created under the ACA, including 4.1 million who are newly covered and 7.1 million people who transitioned to marketplace plans from another source of coverage.
  • The study also estimates that 125.2 million Americans—about 80 percent of the non-elderly population that had insurance in September 2013—experienced no change in their source of insurance during the period.
