Following on the release of the New Jersey Healthcare Experience State Survey, Altarum Healthcare Value Hub have released results from a new survey that looks specifically at how affordability concerns and ideas for action play out in Kentucky.
The survey of more than 1,100 Kentucky adults, conducted from May 8, 2020 to May 26, 2020, found that 58% of Kentucky adults report one or more healthcare affordability problems. Other findings include:
- Over three-quarters (77%) are worried about affording healthcare in the future;
- High numbers are worried about becoming ill from COVID; and
- Across party lines, they express strong support for government-led solutions.
Altarum’s Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey (CHESS) is designed to elicit respondents’ unbiased views on a wide range of health system issues, including confidence using the health system, financial burden and views on fixes that might be needed. Along with New Jersey and Kentucky, Altarum Healthcare Value Hub will release survey results for Connecticut and Mississippi in the next couple weeks
