Pennsylvania Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

A survey of more than 1,150 Pennsylvania adults, conducted from Oct. 30, 2020 to Dec. 10, 2020, found that:

  • 1 in 2 experienced healthcare affordability burdens in the past year;
  • 3 in 4 are worried about affording healthcare in the future; 
  • 3 in 5 are worried about affording treatment for COVID-19 if they need it; 
  • Nearly 7 in 10 identified healthcare as the top issue the government should address in the coming year; and
  • Across party lines, 9 in 10 expressed support for a broad array of government led solutions.

Altarum’s Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey (CHESS) is designed to elicit respondents’ unbiased views on a wide range of health system issues, including confidence using the health system, financial burden and views on fixes that might be needed.
