With the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act here to stay, most Americans remain pessimistic about health care, according to new research from WG Consulting. Three out of four anticipate that the cost and quality of care, access to medications and doctors, availability of treatment innovations and insurance costs and coverage all will stay the same or get worse.
