Codes and Frequencies
For all persons who currently have health insurance coverage through CHIP and whose CHIP plan has an enrollment fee or premium, CHIPPINC reports if the premium paid for this plan is based on income.
New questions were added to the Health Insurance section of the NHIS Family core in 2014 to obtain details about whether plans (both private and public) were obtained through Healthcare.gov or the person's state Health Insurance Marketplace, whether there is an enrollment fee or premium (public plans only), and whether the premium is based on income (expanded to include public plans). For more information on these questions, please refer to MCAIDXCHG.
Persons included in the universe are persons who were classified as having CHIP insurance in the back-edited variable HICHIPE. This is recommended as the most reliable source of information about the type of insurance coverage compared to that provided by respondents' original unedited answers about their insurance type.
