The Consequences of Being Uninsured

Jason Millman examines some of the data from the recent National Center for Health Statistics report “that provided a wide-ranging checkup on how our country is performing on numerous health-care measures.”

“The results aren’t all that surprising, but the graphs are a helpful visualization of how people put off necessary care because they can’t afford it. And ultimately, delaying care could lead to poorer health and the use of even more services, the NCHS report points out.”

Millman highlights the correlation “between people’s income and their decision to skip medical and dental care because of cost.”
