SDGLN Poll: Readers declare whether they will sign up for Obamacare

SAN DIEGO – About three in 10 readers of San Diego Gay & Lesbian News who took our poll indicate that they will be signing up for the Affordable Care Act benefits, aka Obamacare.

Our poll question was: Will you sign up for Obamacare between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31?

The results, which are not scientific, reveal that 29% of readers will sign up for Obamacare because they are uninsured. The Affordable Care Act is designed to provide health insurance options to those who are not covered. A total of 65% say that they are already covered by insurance, and another 5% are not sure if they will sign up. The new law, would goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2014 requires all uninsured Americans to get healthcare insurance or face a fine.
