Health Reform Poll Numbers

In Health Reform Weekly an article published by Aetna … we read about some startling facts.

Health Reform Weekly – Aetna – Week of February 3, 2014
Despite the publicity surrounding the problem-plagued launch of new health insurance exchanges and the January 1 implementation date for many important provisions, the American public still seems largely unaware of what has changed under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The latest Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll found that a significant majority (62 percent) of the public continue to believe that only some of the law’s provisions are in effect. Just 19 percent say most or all of the law has been implemented. Awareness of the individual mandate has climbed to 81 percent, but awareness of other provisions remains low – only four in 10 adults are aware of potential subsidies for coverage purchased through the new exchanges. Americans continue to have a largely negative view of the ACA overall – 50 percent have an unfavorable view of the law while 34 percent have a favorable view. But 55 percent say the focus should be on trying to improve the law rather than repeal, while 38 percent support repeal.
