Why are people still remaining uninsured? It’s an important question, especially with the enacting of the Affordable Care Act. The decision to remain uninsured has not been lightly made. Even with the institution of the ACA, around 13% of Americans (according to Gallup) have listed some of the following reasons for not getting coverage:
One might think being uninsured would be a scary prospect, however the potential for incurring high medical bills stops people from pursuing insurance in the first place. A portion of the uninsured 13% budgets so tightly that they feel there is literally no room for health care. Many say that it becomes a choice between securing basic needs or healthcare and that, when given the choice, would rather invest in healthy food than cut their budgets for health care costs when preventative measures—eating healthy—are already being taken. It’s essentially a matter of high cost versus health concerns and in this case, high cost fears undermine the health concerns.
Today, there are a large number of Americans who are insured thanks to Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Despite that, there are still around 16% of Americans who are not insured, but still find themselves in need of prescription drugs. Because of that, they are seeking out reasonable means to obtain these medications at little cost.
