Connecticut Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

A survey of more than 1,300 Connecticut adults, conducted from July 22 to August 12, 2022, found that:

  • Over half (55%) experienced at least one healthcare affordability burden in the past year;
  • Nearly 4 in 5 (78%) worry about affording healthcare in the future;
  • Lower-income respondents and respondents with disabilities are more likely to go without care and incur debt due to healthcare costs; and
  • Across party lines, respondents express strong support for government-led solutions.

Altarum’s Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey (CHESS) is designed to elicit respondents’ unbiased views on a wide range of health system issues, including confidence using the health system, financial burden and views on fixes that might be needed.
