Based on 2014 data, approximately 7% of persons (22.3 million) in the United States delayed medical care during the preceding year because of worry about the cost, and 5% (16.5 million) did not receive needed medical care because they could not afford it. Persons whose health was assessed as fair or poor were nearly four to five times as likely as persons whose health was excellent or very good to delay care (17.6% versus 4.7%) or not receive needed medical care (15.1% versus 3.1%) because of cost.
