April 11, 2013 (WEKU 88.9) A recent statewide survey shows health-care costs are a burden for many Kentuckians,
especially for those who are poor and don't have insurance and put off
getting care they need because they can't afford it. More than 60
percent of Kentucky adults in the poll said high costs forced them or a
family member living in their home to delay getting care in the past
year. Not surprisingly, almost 90 percent of uninsured respondents
reported going completely without care in the past year.
