Over ¼ of American Adults Struggle with Healthcare Affordability

A Look Into the Solution with CEO Shane Foss

 

For many Americans, access to zero-deductible affordable health coverage isn’t an option, especially for low- and middle-income families. In fact, 27% of adults face at least one healthcare affordability challenge every year.1 That’s why Hooray Health is on a mission to solve the healthcare affordability problem by engineering solutions to alleviate cost burdens. We understand the landscape of healthcare accessibility and make it a point to implement proactive, tangible measures that extend beyond simply acknowledging the problem.

 

The Pervasive Issue of Healthcare Affordability

 

A recent study published by Health Affairs has revealed what the Hooray Health team has known for quite a while: nearly half of US adults face healthcare affordability issues like high out-of-pocket costs, medical debt, delayed care, and forgone care due to financial strain.1

The main culprit? Inadequate insurance coverage. The lack of access to affordable care amplifies the urgency for inclusive policies and initiatives that address our country’s multi-faceted affordability problem. Cost burdens, medical debt, and even geographical barriers to care are higher among low-income individuals and families. This emphasizes the need for a solution to the systemic care intervention problem.

Our commitment lies in crafting innovative solutions that break barriers and clear a path to affordable healthcare. As CEO of Hooray Health, I’m proud to lead a team prioritizing simplicity and affordability throughout the care journey.
