58% of Uninsured Haven't Even Browsed HealthCare.gov Yet
In addition to bad news about the website, most of the uninsured think that getting health insurance will "hurt them financially" which is keeping people from even looking.
According to the latest CBS/NYTs poll, a full 58% of the uninsured haven't browsed Healthcare.gov to check out the exchanges, yet...
Via Jim Geraghty:
Ten percent of uninsured Americans in the poll say they have applied for insurance under the exchanges. Thirty-two percent say they have looked up information about the exchanges but have not applied; 58 percent have not looked up information about health insurance exchanges.
Oh, and 59 percent of the uninsured think getting health insurance would “hurt them financially.”
13 percent of those polled said they’d "received a notice that their health insurance plan is being cancelled or changed because it does not meet the minimum coverage requirements under the 2010 health care law."
That percentage is certain to grow in 2014 when tens of millions of employer health plans are canceled because they are not compliant with ObamaCare.
