A new survey from Ipsos on behalf of Consumers for Quality Care found that heading into election day, voters are deeply frustrated by unpredictable costs and the lack of transparency in health care.
Health care is a major political issue for Americans in the upcoming midterm election. Clearly, Americans want to see elected officials make improving health care a higher priority. However, Americans do not expect elected officials to be the only ones improving health care; they also see the health industry itself playing a significant role in this improvement.
As in our previous survey, cost is fundamentally the most frustrating part of health care for Americans. However, they would also like to see more clarity and transparency in the health industry. Americans want the health care industry to change and overwhelmingly express a desire for reform that will lower the cost to patients.
We also took a closer look at a number of states to determine what sorts of issues state voters have on their minds. Find links to state-specific fact sheets and press releases below.
