When we decided to look at out of pocket costs we wanted to get a better understanding of how much people pay, who pays and what impact these costs have on their healthcare and their lives. We asked people to give us their story as well as giving us some basic information through the survey. The full stories show how individuals and families are impacted when faced with the double dilemma of difficult health decisions and high, sometimes unexpected, out of pocket expenses.
We regularly release reports both on our own and with partners. For access to reports released earlier than available here, please contact us.
