Poll: Most uninsured didn't know about March Obamacare deadline

The Washington Post, March 26, 2014

As the White House is announcing some leeway on the March 31 enrollment deadline, about six in 10 uninsured American adults didn't know about the deadline in the first place, according to a new poll. The Kaiser Health Tracking Poll, conducted between March 11-17, found that just 39 percent of uninsured adults below the Medicare age knew that March 31 was the deadline to sign up for coverage. But the deadline is about to get some cushion, the Washington Post reported last night - the administration is scheduled to announce today that people have until about mid-April to enroll if they claim they had trouble signing up before March 31.
