2007 Health Insurance Survey of Farm and Ranch Operators ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Research has clearly documented that unaffordable medical bills and resulting medical debt affect large portions of the U.S. population, including a significant portion of those with health insurance. Previous analyses of data from the 2007 Health Insurance Survey of Farm and Ranch Operators showed that although the vast majority of respondents had health insurance, one in five had outstanding debt that resulted from medical bills and one in four reported that health care expenses contributed to their financial problems. However, these analyses did not include data gathered in the survey about dental insurance coverage and out-of-pocket costs that resulted from getting dental care. There is little research on the contribution of dental costs to people's difficulties paying medical bills or their likelihood of accruing medical debt. This brief presents basic data on the costs of dental care, the prevalence of dental debt, and the impact of having dental insurance on the costs of dental care, access to care, and the likelihood that people will experience financial hardship because of health care costs."
2007 Health Insurance Survey of Farm and Ranch Operators ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 2007 Health Insurance Survey of Farmers and Ranchers collected information from over 2,000 non-corporate farm and ranch operators in Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The vast majority of survey respondents had health insurance, yet one in four reported that healthcare expenses contributed to their financial problems, and one in five had outstanding debt that resulted from medical bills. This issue brief examines factors that contribute to high overall costs for health care. Overall costs included the cost of health insurance premiums plus any other out-of-pocket medical or prescription drug expenses
2007 Health Insurance Survey of Farm and Ranch Operators ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research has clearly documented that unaffordable medical bills and resulting medical debt affect significant portions of the United States population. A 2005 survey by the Commonwealth Fund found that more than onethird (34%) of adults ages 19 to 64 had medical bill problems in the past year. Although the uninsured are most at risk of having medical bill problems and medical debt, many people with insurance are vulnerable as well. The Commonwealth Fund survey found that more than a quarter of people continuously insured over the previous year had medical bill problems or medical debt. Another study estimated that 15.6 million Americans were underinsured--that is, with insurance but at risk of having medical bill problems
