WASHINGTON (AP) - Now is when Americans start figuring out that President Barack Obama's health care law goes beyond political talk, and really does affect them and people they know.
A cranky federal website is complicating access to new coverage and some consumers are getting notices that their existing plans are going away. So the potential for winners and losers is creating anxiety and confusion.
Fifty-five percent of those surveyed by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation say they've enough information to understand the law's impact on their family - that's up 8 percentage points in just one month.
Part of the reason is that advertising about how to get coverage is beginning to register.
So who's losing their current plan, or gaining coverage or wondering whether their coverage will change?
