What America Thinks: Health Care Costs on the Rise for the Healthy

Americans overall are pretty healthy, but they complain that they are paying more and more to stay that way.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Americans rate their own health as good or excellent, down just slightly from the all-time high of 80% in late 2015. Just four percent (4%) say they are in poor health.
