A program that offers health insurance to people turned down for private coverage because of a health problem has seen disappointingly low enrollment, a consequence of high premiums. The main push to cover the uninsured under the new law won’t come until 2014. At that time, more than 30 million people are expected to get coverage through a combination of expanding Medicaid and providing tax credits to make private insurance more affordable.

Gallup surveys nearly 1,000 people daily. This analysis includes 89,857 respondents interviewed between April 1 and June 30. The margin of error for the full sample is plus or minus 1 percentage point; it is higher for subgroups.
