Nearly Half of Insured Americans Think They Can’t Afford to Get Sick with Coronavirus

 Friday, March 13, 2020

Nearly half of insured American adults say they’re not confident they could handle costs associated with coronavirus treatment, according to a recent and YouGov poll. The survey polled nearly 2,500 Americans ages 18 and over.

Of those who think they can’t afford to be sick, 23% aren’t very confident they could deal with coronavirus treatment and screening costs without going into debt. And 25% of respondents aren’t at all confident.

The lack of confidence in affording coronavirus costs is more prominent among younger Americans. Of those ages 18 to 34, 35% aren’t confident they could deal with costs compared to 24% of those ages 55 and older, according to additional poll data provided to Business Insider.
