Health Care Costs: What They Think in Des Moines
Hastings Center Report. 1983 Jun; 13(3): 2.
Residents of the Des Moines, Iowa area were surveyed twice--before and after an intensive campaign of citizen education in 1982--to ascertain their views on cutting health care costs. Their willingness to forego some services to control costs increased after the educational campaign, but the vast majority of people remained opposed to cutting back care for the poor, the elderly, or patients with critical illnesses. Rationing resources and trimming medical research were also unpopular. (KIE abstract)
