WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - In less than three weeks, the enrollment period will begin with the new health insurance marketplaces as part of the Affordable Care Act.
Almost 30% of Americans feel more negative about the Affordable Care Act (often referred to as Obamacare) now than they did one year ago.
According to a new Bankrate survey, Americans still have a lot of questions about the new law and how it will impact their health care coverage. Some have questions about how it will affect their budgets, while others wonder what it even is, and if it's happening.
Ronald Bring of West Hartford, Connecticut told 22News that he's not even sure politicians and business owners understand how exactly it will play out, but says it's a step in the right direction for the U.S., which he believes lags behind other countries' systems.
“I think anything that's going to give more Americans access to health care is a good thing. There are way too many people who are uninsured right now and that's a terrible burden,” Bring said.
