Nearly 47 million Americans nationwide are currently uninsured. Their biggest concern: how to go about finding a health care plan that they can afford. In many cases, insurance shoppers are just looking at the wrong type of coverage. The fact is: There are a wide variety of affordable medical insurance plans on the market.
These are trying times; Americans' level of confidence in being able to afford health care has decreased around 5% since December 2009, according to the Thomson Reuters Consumer Healthcare Sentiment Index. The poll surveyed nearly 3,000 American consumers on whether they had difficulties in paying for their health care expenses or had to cancel their health insurance plans altogether in recent months. The results showed a noticeable decline in America's level of confidence in their individual health care plans, as well as an overall lack of optimism in Obama-care and the future of health coverage. The Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll found similar results with the number of Americans who supported Obama-care dropping from 50% in July 2010 to 43% in August.
