Many Uninsured Are Uncertain About Buying Health Coverage

ATLANTA (WAOK) – Almost two-thirds of uninsured Americans aren’t sure they’ll buy health coverage by the January 1st deadline. A new InsuranceQuotes.com survey on the healthcare reform law also shows less than half of respondents think they’ll get better health care once the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented. January 1st is the deadline for uninsured Americans to buy insurance through healthcare exchanges or pay a penalty. InsuranceQuotes analyst Laura Adams says uncertainty about the healthcare law could drive up insurance costs if not enough healthy people get coverage to offset benefit payouts for less healthy people on the same plan.
