Jan. 8, 2014
"The nation appears to be shifting away from the traditional model of health care, in which doctors have most of the decisionmaking authority.... 9 out of 10 people want to have a say in important decisions regarding their health care. One-third would like to make a shared decision with their doctor, 43 percent want to make the final decision with some professional input, and 16 percent prefer to be completely in charge of their medical decisions.... [O]nly 5 percent of people are certain that they will have the recommended amount of savings needed to cover health expenses after they retire, while more than 80 percent are either unsure or unlikely to have enough money set aside for health care in retirement."
