They’re supposedly young and healthy, but a new study shows that more than half of Millennials report having a chronic health condition. In addition, Millennials struggle how to navigate the health care system, starting with choosing an appropriate health plan in the first place.
These and other surprising findings are from a new study on Millennials and their experience with the health insurance and health care system.
In a recent poll conducted by the Transamerica Center for Health Studies of 1,171 U.S. Millennials, the research looks at how this mega-generation has experienced the healthcare system to-date and their expectations moving forward. In this episode, Jesse interviews Hector De La Torre, the Executive Director of the Transamerica Center for Health Studies (TCHS).
