MRKCOVLY reports whether the respondent had any marketplace health insurance coverage during the previous year. Marketplace health insurance plans are obtained through healthcare.gov or through equivalent state-run online marketplaces. Infants born after the calendar year are not included.
Health insurance exchanges, or online marketplaces where one can purchase private health insurance, were established in all U.S. states by the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as the ACA). For those without coverage available through an employer, a family member's coverage, or Medicaid or SCHIP, the ACA provides subsidies on a sliding scale for individuals whose Modified Adjusted Gross Income is between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty line. Individuals whose marketplace coverage was subsidized last year are reported in MRKSCOVLY, and those with unsubsidized coverage in MRKUCOVLY.
