Financial burdens and barriers to care among nonelderly adults with heart disease: 2010-2015.
Researchers examined the prevalence of high burdens and barriers to care among adults with heart disease treatment. Using MEPS data, they found that public insurance provides protection against high burdens but not against forgoing or delaying care. They recommended that future research investigate whether, and to what extent, barriers to care are associated with worse health outcomes and higher costs in the long term.
