DELAYS TO TREATING MEDICAL NEEDS DUE TO COST

The survey found that 14% of adults reported that they had delayed getting a medical consultation, at some time in their lives, because they could not afford it while 11% reported that they had delayed purchasing prescribed medication because they could not afford it (see Table 2).
