HEALTH CARE STUDY-TOPVO

A NEW STUDY FINDS THAT A GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICANS ARE SKIPPING NEEDED MEDICAL CARE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD IT.

THE COMMONWEALTH FUND SURVEY FOUND 80-MILLION PEOPLE DIDN'T GO TO THE DOCTOR OR ACCESS OTHER MEDICAL SERVICES LAST YEAR BECAUSE OF THE COST.

THAT'S FIVE-MILLION MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO.

THOSE WHO WERE UNINSURED OR HAD INADEQUATE HEALTH INSURANCE WERE MOST LIKELY TO HAVE TROUBLE AFFORDING CARE.
