Mistrust May Cause People to Put Off Treatment

But delaying needed care ends up raising health-care costs, study says

THURSDAY, Sept. 3 (HealthDay News) -- Patients who don't trust the health-care system are more likely to postpone treatment, potentially hurting their own health and raising overall health care costs, a new study suggests.

Researchers surveyed 401 Baltimore residents, the majority of whom were black, about their attitudes toward the health care system, including doctors, hospitals and insurance companies.

Patients who were suspicious of the system were also more likely to admit to putting off medical care that doctors told them was necessary.

The study will appear online in Health Services Research.

"We found that persons who were more mistrustful of the health-care system were more likely to delay needed care or postpone receiving care, even when they perceived they needed it," LaVeist said.

"Mistrust of the health-care system leads to patients delaying treatment, so when they do enter into the health-care system, they're encountering the system when they're further along and more expensive and difficult to treat," LaVeist added.
