Poll dates: November 30 - December 7, 2016
Total Votes: 37

The growing cost of health care in the United States, and the challenge of paying for it, is in the forefront of public debate today. Families who have kids with type 1 diabetes are overwhelmingly concerned about their children's ability to pay for diabetes care when they reach adulthood, as shown in this week's poll. Results from this poll run in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 were very similar and indicate a growing level of concern about the cost of diabetes care.
