Millions of young adults are forgoing necessary care and treatment because of rising healthcare costs.
In fact, 41-percent of young adults, between the ages of 19 and 29 failed to get medical care in a recent 12-month period, because of cost.
They are not filling prescriptions, skipping recommended tests or treatments, avoiding doctor visits and failing to get the specialist care they need.
And doctors are noticing that young adults stop listening to medical advice once they hear the cost of treatment.
When young adults do get care, analysts say growing medical debt weighs heavily on them.
