POLL FINDS SATISFACTION WITH CLINICS

MAY 01, 2007

Retail-based health clinics are winning the support of most Americans, according to a recent Wall Street Journal Online/Harris Interactive health care poll. Of the 2441 US adults polled who visited the clinics, 42% said that their health insurance policy covered all or a portion of the costs, 36% said insurance did not cover any of the costs, and 22% reported they did not have health insurance at the time.

A majority of the individuals who use clinics are mainly satisfied. The poll found that 83% said they had been satisfied with the convenience offered by the clinics, and 90% said they are satisfied with the quality of care. As for the cost, 80% said they are satisfied. Yet, many of the respondents said they worry about the quality of care at these clinics.

For example, 64% said they would be worried about the staff qualifications at a clinic not run by physicians.
