Maryland Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

A survey of more than 1,300 Maryland adults, conducted from July 6 to July 20, 2022, found that:

  • Nearly 3 in 5 (55%) experienced at least one healthcare affordability burden in the past year;
  • More than 4 in 5 (82%) reported worry about affording healthcare in the future;
  • Lower-income respondents and respondents with disabilities were more likely to report go without care and incurring debt due to healthcare costs; and
  • Across party lines, respondents expressed 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.
