Access to care leads Americans' priorities in first-ever public study of health value
Date:5/12/2009

icans ranked access significantly higher than all other products and services, such as preventive health care or mental health care," added Spolarich.

The Spectrum Health Value Study detailed findings may be found at www.healthvaluestudy.com. Spectrum plans to continue querying samples of Americans on their health values and make available findings on a quarterly basis.

Additional Study findings:

  • 69 percent agreed that the cost of health care benefits and services are ultimately paid for by individuals who contribute in various ways.
  • The number of persons with health insurance coverage dropped from 82 percent in January 2009 to 74 percent in April.
  • The percentage of people using products and services on a regular basis has generally fallen between January and April.
  • Also of note, in light of the recent H1N1 outbreak, Americans placed nominal value on the emergency relief and preventive services.
  • While Americans value preventive health services strongly, they do not use them on a regular basis and when they do use them they are not very satisfied with the quality of preventive health services.
  • Despite the attention being raised around the obesity epidemic, Americans neither value nor use nutrition services. When they are used, they are not considered very satisfactory.
