Uninsured Are Less Satisfied

Given that people without health insurance have no protection from health care costs, it is not surprising that they are much less likely to say they are satisfied with costs than those with insurance (31 percent vs. 68 percent Majorities of both the uninsured and insured report being satisfied with the quality of care they receive, but the differences are still striking. Six in ten of the uninsured say they are satisfied with their quality of care, compared to almost nine in ten of those with insurance. For both cost and quality, the uninsured are about half as likely as the insured to report they are “very satisfied.” Additionally, the uninsured are less likely to report they are satisfied in their ability to access the latest, most sophisticated medical treatments than the insured (45 percent vs. 84 percent).
