We examine these issues using administrative records and survey data for those enrolled in the individual market in California. We conclude that there is less turnover in this market than is commonly believed. We find that economic factors and coverage characteristics are important in the decision to disenroll, but that perceptions about insurance and the health care system also affect this decision.||Funding Details:||California HealthCare Foundation (grant no. 01-1520)||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Excellus Health Plan||Journal:||Inquiry||Volume:||42||Issue:||4||Start page:||381||End page:||397||Copyright (published version):||Copyright 2005 Inquiry Journal & Excellus Health Plan, Inc||Keywords:||Health insurance; Insurance coverage; Consumer behavior; Turnover||Subject LCSH:||Insurance, Health--United States
