Poll: 66% of uninsured plan to get health coverage
San Francisco Chronicle

Most Californians have at least heard about the state’s new health insurance marketplace, and the majority of the uninsured who participated in a survey released Wednesday said they plan to get covered next year as required by the federal health law.

About 68 percent of the 1,701 Californians surveyed Nov. 12-19 – more than a month after the national launch on Oct. 1 – said they were aware a health care exchange is available to people in the state to buy medical insurance.
