Where Cost Interferes with Care

Percentage of people surveyed who say they couldn’t see a doctor in the past 12 months due to cost

17.1% of Californians don’t see a doctor because of expense.

7.5% of Hawaiians reported difficulty seeing a doctor due to cost. The state suffers from one of the worst doctor shortages.

People who didn’t see a doctor because of expense also live in states with the lowest number of primary-care physicians per resident, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges: Mississippi (160), Arkansas (169), Texas (176), Alabama (178), and Oklahoma (179).

In Mississippi, 1 in 5 people haven’t been to a doctor because of money.

The region where people reported more health-care affordability is also where there is a less acute doctor shortage: the Northeast.

North Dakota residents report the least amount of trouble seeing a doctor; 6.5% have difficulty.
