Stressed out with healthcare...
A recent survey shows many Americans delay going to the doctor or filling prescriptions -- blaming the rising cost in healthcare.
The Thomson Reuters survey found at least twenty one percent of adults in the United States find it financially strapping to pay for health insurance and health services.
Over the past two years, the survey found the number of people canceling their insurance has increased.
Researchers interviewed twelve thousand Americans in February and March for the survey.
More than fifty-four percent who skipped care said they missed a doctor visit.
Eight percent said they missed some sort of medical imaging.
