More than 65 percent of Americans unable to live healthfully

Posted On Thu, November 17, 2011

A recent survey from Harris Interactive and IMRE Healthcare found that two-thirds of Americans are unable to live a healthy lifestyle to due multiple factors.

A total of 30 percent of American adults noted high costs as their biggest hinderance to living healthy, while another 27 percent noted they do not have the time to do it, and more than 15 percent noted living healthy isn't a priority for them.

"Those individual decisions may continue to pummel our health economy as the prevalence of preventable chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity remains unaddressed," said Daphne Swancutt, director of healthcare strategy and healthcare practice leader for IMRE Healthcare. "This is especially true if there is not a stronger call to action to make healthy living for all Americans a priority all the time."

Consumers who don't live healthy lifestyles are likely more prone to health issues. Before those issues develop, it may be wise to make sure that healthcare coverage is sufficient. By comparing health insurance rates, Americans can not only save cash, but they can find out what plan is best tailored for them.
