A new survey from Altarum – Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey (CHESS) – reveals how affordability concerns and ideas for action play out in Pennsylvania. The survey of more than 960 Pennsylvania adults, conducted from Aug. 28-Sept. 14, 2018, found that 1 in 2 Pennsylvania adults experienced healthcare affordability burdens in the past year, including 1 in 3 who struggled to pay medical bills. 4 in 5 are worried about affording healthcare in the future. A very similar number agreed that the system needs to change. Across party lines, 4 of 5 residents expressed dissatisfaction with the current health system. Also across party lines, 9 of 10 supported a broad array of solutions.
