Financial Crisis Looms on Minds of Voters; Affordability of Health Care Major Concern as They Head to the Polls
Date:11/3/2008

Additional findings from the survey demonstrate how stretched many households are financially to afford health care:

-- Of the survey respondents who reported delaying or skipping care in the

past 12 months, 27 percent said they did so because they could not

afford the cost.

-- Nearly half (47 percent) said their household's spending on health

care products and services has increased during the past 12 months and

63 percent said it limits their spending on other essentials.

-- Twenty-two percent said they have an outstanding medical bill that is

more than 90 days past due.

Methodology: The preliminary findings reported here come from an online survey of a nationally representative sample of 4,010 U.S. adults conducted between October 2 and 10, 2008. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.6 percent.
