Video: Just What the Doctor Ordered: Survey Shows Americans Adopting Healthier Lifestyles
Date:10/10/2008

rance coverage to all Americans (55 percent).

In order to ensure that all Americans have access to health insurance, those surveyed "strongly supported":

-- Expanding government programs, such as Medicare or Medicaid (43 percent)

-- Requiring all employers to pay toward subsidized health insurance for

employees (41 percent)

-- Requiring everyone to participate in some kind of health insurance plan

(37 percent)

-- Providing tax breaks to help people pay for coverage they purchase on

their own (54 percent) and to help people pay for employer coverage (48

percent)

-- Allowing those who are uninsured to buy into government programs, like

Medicare and Medicaid (48 percent)

-- Allowing those who are uninsured to buy the health insurance coverage

offered to government employees (37 percent)

Migrating to new infrastructure

The survey also indicated that Americans are beginning to show support for health care infrastructure that provides more transparency:

-- More than half of Americans (55 percent) say it's important for

providers to use electronic medical records, and four out of five say

these records should be stored in a central location so that their

health information could be shared by all health care providers they

authorize to use it.

-- More than half (56 percent) of Americans say the total cost of the

doctor or hospital would be "extremely" or "very"

important when choosing a provider through an objective rating system

(if the quality ratings were about equal).

Full results of the 2008 EBRI Health Confidence Survey are published in the October issue of EBRI Notes, which is available on EBRI's Web site at http://www.ebri.org.
