Survey finds mixed views on impact of reform law
Modern Healthcare

Public perception of the health reform law’s ability to increase insurance access and curb healthcare costs is divided, a newly released survey found, though more adults said they consider the law favorable. Nearly six out of 10 (59%) said the law would have a positive impact on access to affordable insurance for those without, according to a survey by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions. Twenty percent said the law’s impact on access to affordable insurance would be negative. The late September and early October telephone survey, conducted by the Harris Poll, included nationally representative sample of roughly 1,000 adults.
