Poll: More Americans concerned about health care coverage

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Americans are more worried about losing their current health care covering, as the debate over health care reform nears the Senate floor.

The results of a new poll were released this week by the nonpartisan Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

According to the survey, about one-third of respondents say they're worried about losing the coverage they already have within the next 12 months. That's slightly up from 29 percent in August and up 11 percentage points since the spring.

Forty percent of young adults surveyed say they're concerned, compared with 29 percent of seniors who say despite taxpayer-subsidized coverage through Medicare, they remain worried.
