Americans dissatisfied with healthcare costs.
Overall, those surveyed said that paying more for insurance--and subsequently, also paying more for actual healthcare services delivered that are just partially covered or not covered by insurance--means they are saving less. More than 35 percent of survey respondents said they had to reduce contributions to their retirement savings to accommodate increased healthcare expenses, and 53 percent said they reduced contributions to other savings vehicles as well.
