pipedreams Posted October 11, 2021 Share Posted October 11, 2021 1 in 4 American's forgo seeing a Dr because they can't afford the copay and/or prescriptions. Yet if you illegally cross our USA border EVERYTHING is free. "Over the past year, 22% of Americans say they have steered clear of some sort of medical care — including doctor visits, medications, vaccinations, annual exams, screenings, vision checks and routine blood work — because of the expense, according to a recent online survey of roughly 2,500 U.S. adults conducted on behalf of Bankrate. Additionally, 15% report that another family member in their household decided to forgo medical care because it was too expensive. When broken down by age, millennials (ages 24 to 39) reported avoiding the doctor’s office at higher rates than baby boomers (ages 56 to 74). The cost of medical care services in U.S. cities increased an average of 5.3% over the past 12 months ending in February, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ consumer price index.
