LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new Field Poll finds most of those who would qualify for insurance coverage or tax breaks under President Barack Obama's health care reforms don't know it.

That's one of the key findings of the survey released Wednesday. It found many voters remain confused by the health overhaul, more than three years after it became law.

The survey questioned uninsured, lower-income voters who would qualify for coverage. It found slightly more than half either didn't know it or believed the opposite — that they were not eligible.

The confusion was broader for voters currently not covered by an employer or government program but who would qualify for tax credits when buying coverage.

The telephone poll of 1,200 voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
