New NPR/Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard Kennedy School of Government Survey on Health Care
A new survey by NPR, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and Harvard s Kennedy School of Government finds that many Americans have real problems when it comes to accessing and paying for health care, and even if they haven’t yet faced a problem, many worry about getting and paying for care in the future. The survey also shows that, while people think helping seniors with the cost of prescription drugs should be a priority, most seniors would not be willing to pay significantly more than they pay now for drug coverage under Medicare.
