Majority of those insured under PPACA plan to change healthcare plans in 2015

Two-thirds of Americans insured under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act plan to switch healthcare plans in 2015, according to a survey by Radius Global Market Research.

Although the majority of those covered under the PPACA intend to shop around for coverage, only 20 percent indicated they were unsatisfied with their current plan.

For those intending to switch plans, their top priorities are lower costs and improved access to physicians, according to the survey.

"Consumers feel that there are opportunities to get more value from the current health insurance market," said Kathleen Relias, senior vice president of Radius Global Market Research. "Plans need to develop specific strategies to avoid significant customer churn in the coming months."
