Tennessee Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

In a period of great political divisiveness, Tennessee adults are fairly united around one topic—the need for government action to address healthcare issues, especially healthcare affordability.

Nationally, consumer worry about healthcare affordability is well documented but now—for the first time—a new survey reveals how affordability concerns and ideas for action play out in Tennessee. 

Key Findings

A survey of more than 900 Tennessee adults, conducted from March 26, 2021 to April 9, 2021, found that:

  • More than 3 in 5 (61%) experienced healthcare affordability burdens in the past year;
  • More than 3 in 4 (78%) are worried about affording healthcare in the future;
  • Over half (55%) are worried about affording treatment for COVID-19 if they need it; and
  • Across party lines, respondents express strong support for government-led solutions.
