Survey: What Americans Think of the ACA Reforms

As the key components of the Affordable Care Act roll out this week, more than three-quarters of U.S. adults are aware of the law’s requirement that everyone have health coverage, but only four of 10 are aware of the new insurance marketplaces set to open on October 1, or the financial assistance available to defray the cost of insurance premiums, a new Commonwealth Fund survey finds.

But results also reveal broad support for expanding Medicaid in all states. Read all about the survey’s findings in the issue brief What Americans Think of the New Insurance Marketplaces and Medicaid Expansion. And be sure to check out our infographic.
