A new poll released this (MON) morning explores citizens' experiences with the American health care system in the two years since the Affordable Care Act was implemented. The poll, conducted by NPR and researchers from Harvard and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, focused on Kansas and six other states. Much of what Kansas residents reported tracked with national trends, but there were some notable exceptions. Heartland Health Monitor's Bryan Thompson has the details.
