SALT LAKE CITY -- A new poll reveals more about the current health insurance situation in Utah.

KSL and the Deseret News recently polled Utah residents about their health care situations. Dan Jones and Associates asked those who currently have health insurance to describe their status:

  • 66 percent said their health insurance coverage had not changed in the past year
  • 25 percent said their coverage had been cut back
  • 4 percent indicated their coverage got better

As for those who are not insured:

  • 60 percent said they've been without medical coverage for at least the past year
  • 17 percent said they lost their jobs, and therefore their health coverage

We also wanted to find out what people thought of the so-called "Public Option" plan that congress is considering.

  • 50 percent said they do not support such a plan
  • 41 percent like the idea
