Wisconsin Consumer Healthcare Experience State Survey

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 Wisconsin.

The survey of more than 1,000 Wisconsin adults, conducted from October 29, 2019, to November 6, 2019, found that:

  • More than half (53%) experienced healthcare affordability burdens in the past year;
  • Four out of five (79%) are worried about affording healthcare in the future; and
  • Across party lines, they 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.
