Americans’ Satisfaction With Healthcare System Edges Down

Because ObamaCare is doing so well. 

I guess if your boss is paying for your healthcare, you don’t care so much. 

Sixty-five percent of Americans are satisfied with the way the healthcare system works for them, down slightly from 67% in 2014. Americans with Medicare, Medicaid and military or veterans’ insurance continue to express the most satisfaction, at or near 75%, while uninsured Americans report the lowest (40%).

Since 2014, personal satisfaction with the way the healthcare system works is down among all insured groups, including a four-percentage-point drop, from 66% to 62%, among adults who pay for their own insurance, and three-point drops among those covered by an employer, union, or military or veterans’ insurance. Even though satisfaction has declined, Americans whose healthcare is subsidized by the government have consistently expressed the highest satisfaction.
