Utah Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

A survey of more than 1,300 Utah adults, conducted from May 18 to June 3, 2023, found that:

  • Nearly 7 in 10 (69%) experienced at least one healthcare affordability burden in the past year;
  • Over 4 in 5 (86%) worry about affording healthcare in the future;
  • Lower-income respondents and respondents with disabilities reported higher rates of going 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.
