Majority of Uninsured American Will Buy Insurance

In a recent report from Gallup Healthcare by Frank Newport and Kyley McGeeney, it was found that 65% of uninsured Americans plan to buy insurance as directed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) while 25% plan not to buy insurance but to pay the associated fine. Less than half of uninsured Americans (48%) say that they will seek insurance in health insurance exchange programs offered by either their state government or the federal government while 36% of the uninsured said that they will make their insurance purchase through one of the government programs. 

In this round, the Gallup Daily Tracking Survey asked Americans about their awareness of provisions in the the ACA, which goes into effect on January 1, 2014. and how they plan to respond to those provisions. Gallup surveyed a nationally representative sample of 5,099 insured and uninsured American adults via landline and cell phone from September 17, 2013 through September 26, 2013.
