No wonder over 60% of Americans – no matter their income – cite health insurance costs as a major life stressor, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association in 2018. With healthcare costs averaging over $10,000 per person annually and rising, they’re stressed about:
- Uncertain future healthcare spending
- Healthcare policy and legislation changes
- Cost of medications
- Medical bills
