More Americans delay healthcare

Wall Street Journal (subscription required), June 26, 2008

An increasing number of Americans, many with health insurance, are delaying or forgoing medical care because of concern about cost, according to a report from the Center for Studying Health System Change. A 2007 survey of 18,000 people found that 20% of the respondents said that they had put off or gone without needed medical treatment at some point in the prior year, up from 14% in a 2003 survey. Of those who said in the 2007 survey they had put off care, 69% cited concern about cost as a reason.
