Report: Obtaining Healthcare Coverage Still Difficult Amid Reform

Is it too early for this sort of news, or is a political agenda afoot? According to a new Gallup survey, the nascent reform law is still leaving a significant amount of uninsured without adequate coverage from employers. Ditto for the elderly and the government.

Some of the main components of the Affordable Care Act, such as tax credits for small businesses that provide health insurance to their employees, and the establishment of a pre-existing condition insurance plan, have done little to boost Americans’ health coverage, the survey found.

This report comes on the heels of a recent appeals court decision reaffirming the constitutionality of the law and its coverage mandates. It’s no secret, however, that the ACA is still struggling to get in the good graces of the majority of stalwart congressional Republicans and some Dems. Still a little early to say if the report will gain traction ahead of the first GOP primaries in less than two months; but, it represents another PR hurdle the law’s proponents must overcome on the road to reclaiming the White House in ’12. | LINK
