Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, over 1.6 million Colorado families did not seek treatment sometime in the last year for a health problem due to the cost of care, according to a new report from nonprofit and nonpartisan West Health and Global Strategy Group.
The report on the healthcare cost crisis and its consequences is based on a survey of 600 adults conducted Aug. 20–30, 2020
3 in 4 Colorado families report healthcare costs are going up.
Over half of Coloradans prefer a public official who will prioritize bringing down healthcare costs over lowering taxes or reducing regulations.
Nearly 675,000 Coloradans had a friend or family member who died in the past 5 years because they couldn’t afford medical treatment.
