  • 44% are extremely or very concerned about being able to maintain their current level of health care coverage.
  • 25% find it extremely or very difficult to pay their out-of-pocket medical expenses.
  • 37% are extremely or very concerned about affording prescription drugs over the next 2 years, and 24% are somewhat concerned.
