One Third of Uninsured Americans Suffers from a Chronic Illness
August 5th 2008
According to a recent study conducted by a team of researchers from Harvard Medical School in Boston and the Cambridge Health Alliance, an estimated 11.4 Americans without health insurance suffer from chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Previous studies have shown that uninsured Americans are more likely to suffer from advanced forms of cancer compared to people covered by private health insurance.
The uninsured are more likely to suffer from chronic disease and other severe illnesses because most of them are not getting routine screenings for different types of diseases in time.
