TEXAS HEALTHCARE - Three in five Texans say they or a family member have postponed or skipped healthcare due to its costs. That’s according to a new survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Episcopal Health Foundation. Elena Marks with the Episcopal Health Foundation explains why more Texans forgo healthcare to Texas Public Radio KUT in Austin.
Marks says "Because we have the highest percentage and highest number of uninsured adults in Texas, it’s not surprising that we would have higher than the national average people reporting skipping care or being unable to afford care."
The study found that lower income adults were more likely to report finding health care unaffordable.
