A new survey released by Enroll America, a nonprofit and Obama administration ally that rallied people to Obamacare, shows largely positive reviews from people who picked up coverage because of the law during its six-month enrollment period.

Newly enrolled people are four times more likely to say they are happy with their coverage than unhappy, 41-11 percent, and 74 percent say they are very or somewhat confident they will be able to pay their premiums going forward, according to the survey results.

Fifty-six percent said their plan has enough doctors and providers, while 13 percent feel there are not enough. “Relieved” is the word that best expresses how the newly enrolled feel, with 47 percent opting for the term, according to Enroll America.

Obamacare’s first enrollment period ended in mid-April with more than 8 million sign-ups on the exchanges, and several million existing and newly eligible persons have enrolled into Medicaid so far.

The White House says that is proof the law is working, but Republican foes say new enrollees will face rising premiums and narrow doctor networks. They also point to the high number of people who received cancellation notices last year because their existing plans did not meet the law’s coverage requirements.
