One of the biggest misconceptions about President Obama's health care overhaul isn't who the law will cover, but rather who it won't.

If it survives Supreme court scrutiny, the landmark overhaul will expand coverage to about 30 million uninsured people, according to government figures. But an estimated 26 million

Americans will remain without coverage -- a population that includes illegal immigrants and those who can't afford to pay out-of-pocket for health insurance.

The Supreme Court is expected to hand down a decision this month on whether to uphold the law completely or strike down parts or all of it.
