Poll: Just 33 Percent Support Mandated Health Coverage Requirments

Most realize "one size fits all" is a bad idea


Just 33% of all voters still believe the government should require every health insurance plan to cover the exact same set of procedures, down from 36% in early November and the lowest level of support measured.  Forty-three percent (43%) now oppose this government requirement, up from 40% in November and the highest level measured this year. Twenty-four percent (24%) are undecided. 

Seventy-three percent (73%) believe individuals should have the right to choose between different types of health insurance plans, including some that cost more and cover just about all medical procedures and some that cost less while covering only major medical procedures. That support is down slightly from November and October. Twelve percent (12%) disagree, with another 15% who are not sure.
