Approximately 30 million people are targeted to gain coverage through the Affordable Care Act, and much of its success hinges on whether that many people sign up for the law’s new insurance options. However, almost three years after the law has passed, polls and focus groups suggest a majority of uninsured people know little about the insurance exchanges and are unaware of the new coverage options or the availability of subsidies toward the cost of health insurance premiums. Simply put, they don’t know where to shop for policies and many respondents say they have had negative experiences with finding health insurance or paying medical debts.
