4 out of 5 CA Voters Demand Health Insurer "Code of Conduct"
Date:7/2/2009

California registered voters conducted by EMC Research May 7-14, 2009.

Key findings:

  • California voters think that the state of healthcare in California is bad and getting worse.
  • Financial concerns about health insurance and healthcare are high on the minds of voters.
  • Voters in California believe health insurance companies have too much control over patient care, and that the industry should have to follow a different set of rules to keep financial concerns from affecting decisions about patient care.
  • The concept of a code of conduct for the health insurance industry is very popular, and requires very little explanation.
  • Key components of a health insurance code of conduct include making sure doctors are the ones making patient care decisions, increasing patient rights, and accountability measures.

Expanded findings:

The state of healthcare in California is bad and getting worse.

Over half of California voters (55%) say healthcare in California has gotten worse in the last 5 years, while just 13% believe it has gotten better. The uninsured are particularly pessimistic, with 66% saying healthcare has gotten worse.

One out of five California voters (21%) thinks the healthcare system in California is in crises, and another one-third (34%) say it is in serious trouble. A third (34%) say it is in some trouble, while just 8% say it is not really in trouble at all.

Financial concerns about health insurance and healthcare are high on the minds of voters.

The most important healthcare issues, according to California voters responding to an open-ended question, are the cost of healthcare (21%), the cost of health insurance (13%), access to health care (11%), and the uninsured (10%). Almost everyone (93%) is concern
