66% of Americans Fear They Won’t Be Able to Afford Health Care This Year

With millions of Americans still unemployed and the Covid-19 pandemic showing no signs of slowing, many are uncertain if they’ll be able to pay for all their health-care needs in 2021. 

About 66% of Americans report they are very, somewhat or a little concerned they won’t be able to afford medical care this year, according to a December survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults conducted by AccessOne. Of the 41% of respondents who are very or moderately concerned about health-care costs, 53% are parents with children.
