With just five days left of open enrollment for Obamacare, 61% of uninsured people are unaware of the March 31 deadline to sign up for health care coverage, according to a Kaiser Health Tracking Poll. When those uninsured people are reminded of the March 31 deadline, 50% say they will still not obtain coverage.
Another key finding to the poll was that only 10% of Americans believe that Obamacare will make health care more affordable and control costs. What’s more, just 7% of those polled think that Obamacare will be good for the country.
Here are other findings of the March 2014 Kaiser Health Tracking Poll:
