In Sept. 2016 Prevention Magazine and the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research conducted a survey on American attitudes about health insurance. The survey used a probability sample of more than 400 men and women nationally ages 45 to 64 who have health insurance. UCLA weighted the survey results. The survey respondents were matched with Census data in terms of race, income level and other diverse demographic characteristics to ensure a representative sample of the general population. The survey was conducted during the last week of September 2016.

The survey found that 92% of Americans ages 45 to 64 say they would keep their current health care plans unless premium prices increase significantly. It also found that 90 percent of those surveyed said they were "very satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with their current health care.
