Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS) Series

The Health Reform Monitoring Survey, or HRMS, is a survey of the nonelderly that began in 2013. It is designed to provide timely information on implementation issues under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and changes in health insurance coverage and related health outcomes. The HRMS relies on GfK’s KnowledgePanel® to assess ACA implementation and identify trends in key outcomes related to the ACA. The HRMS provides data on health insurance coverage, access to and use of health care, health care affordability, and self-reported health status. Beginning in the second quarter of 2013, each round of the HRMS also contains topical questions focusing on timely ACA policy issues. In the first quarter of 2015, the HRMS shifted from a quarterly fielding schedule to a semiannual schedule.
