Only One in 10 Uninsured Americans Say Obamacare Is Helping

Only one in 10 Americans (11% of the uninsured and 9% of the   population) say their health insurance situation has improved over the past year, according to a new Bankrate.com survey. While the health insurance exchanges opened about a month ago, 47% of uninsured Americans still do not know where they can get information on how the Affordable Care Act will affect them.

Sixty-four percent have become more curious about the Affordable Care Act since the exchanges opened on October 1.  Bankrate.com insurance analyst Doug Whiteman said, “The good news is that most Americans are showing interest in Obamacare. Whether or not that interest translates into sign-ups will go a long way toward determining the success or failure of Obamacare.”

Thirty-six percent of Americans say their health care costs have increased over the past 12 months. Only five percent say they have decreased. Thirty-eight percent of the uninsured are more negative about the Affordable Care Act than one year ago (versus 25% who are more positive). For more information, visithttp://www.bankrate.com.
