Delaware Health Care: A Study of Current Challenges and the Support for State Reform

This and Related Reports

AARP members age 50-64 in Delaware overwhelmingly support health care reform in the state, particularly in the areas of quality improvement and cost controls, according to findings from this September 2007 survey.

  • 69% believe that health care in Delaware is in a state of crisis or has major problems.
  • 71% are extremely or very worried about having to pay more for their current care, and 66% are worried about not being able to afford the services they think they need.
  • Despite significant concern about health care-related costs, 47% would choose the improvement of health care quality and medical error reduction as the primary issues for state policymakers to work on in the coming year.
  • 67% would be more likely to vote for a candidate for state public office if he or she supported development of a health care system that gave the same basic coverage to all state residents.

This mail survey of 828 AARP members age 50-64 was conducted by FGI, Inc., in September 2007. For more information, contact Joanne Binette at 202-434-6303. (26 pages)
