Majority of Uninsured Americans Still Lack Knowledge about Obamacare … How is This Possible from the Most Talked About Law Ever?
Clueless in American … Most uninsured Americans lack knowledge about Obamacare.
A recent survey from Enroll America has delivered an almost unbelievable response regarding Obamacare and the lack of knowledge that the uninsured have of the law. According to the survey, 69% of the uninsured still lacked knowledge about tax subsidies and other financial help designed to make Obamacare. How is this possible? Obamacare has been the most talked about, the most marketed government law in history. It is simply uncompromisable to believe that individuals are still claiming to be uninformed regarding Obamacare. It speaks more to the point that maybe they are incapable of understanding it. I guess this is what happens when the uninsured’s find out that Obamacare was not free. Some how I think many will only understand it if some one does it for them.
Most uninsured adult Americans lack basic knowledge about President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law and haven’t visited their online insurance marketplace because they think health insurance is unaffordable, according to a survey released on Thursday.
The survey from Enroll America, a non-profit healthcare enrollment coalition, found that 68 percent of uninsured adults had not yet logged onto their online exchanges.
A similar number, 69 percent of the uninsured, still lacked knowledge about tax subsidies and other financial help designed to make the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, affordable for many, the survey said.
“Large proportions of the uninsured are also still in the dark about deadlines and that brand new plans are available,” Enroll America said in a report about the survey.
“A lack of facts about costs and coverage may be the greatest barriers to enrollment,” it added.
More from Hot Air … Allah Pundit went on to say that “the idea that anyone could be beyond the grasp of a massive presidential education campaign about a splashy new program in the information age is mind-boggling to blog writers and readers, yet here we are.” I could not agree more.
Tax-refund time this year is going to be awfully interesting. Meanwhile, 43 percent of Latinos surveyed said they weren’t aware of Healthcare.gov, which is also partly the White House’s fault and also mind-boggling after three months of relentless media coverage of the site’s problems. The Enroll America topline numbers aren’t wildly different from Gallup’s latest numbers, either. Just a week ago, Gallup reported that only 26 percent of the uninsured had visited an exchange website so far.
