New Jersey Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

Nationally, consumer worry about healthcare affordability has been well documented, but now a new survey looks specifically at how affordability concerns and ideas for action play out in New Jersey.

A survey of more than 1,100 New Jersey adults, conducted from October 2 to October 24, 2022, found that:

  • Nearly 3 in 5 (57%) experienced at least one healthcare affordability burden in the past year;
  • More than 4 in 5 (85%) 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.
