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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
