A recent survey from Euro RSCG Worldwide found that more consumers are trying to save money by cutting out healthcare costs, but many of these people are not becoming more ill as a result.
More than 40 percent of Americans have a financial situation that is worse than it was last year, while close to 30 percent have preferred to spend less money on medical visits. Another 28 percent have lowered their medication expenses.
"The dire economic news just keeps coming, and clearly a lot of people have been badly affected, yet the survey results show a lot more positivity and resilience than you might have expected," said Julie Monroid, partner and chief strategic officer of Havas Worldwide Health. "After all those years of apparent plenty, Americans are now figuring out ways to maintain good health and good spirits through tougher times."
Consumers are not recommended to stop visits to the doctor or stop taking medication without a physician's blessing. There are also many other ways to save money that will not endanger someone's own well-being. One idea could be to look for and compare affordable health insurance quotes, as this could save a significant amount of money in the long run.
