A new survey from Good Rx portrays a bleak health care landscape — one in which 13% of the U.S. population is uninsured, another 13% had at least one prescription medication dropped by their health insurance plan last year, and 34% say their health insurance premiums have increased.

“Many of those who have insurance are paying more for it, and there’s no guarantee that it will cover their medications,” wrote Sasha Guttentag, a research scientist on Good Rx’s research team. “We’re not seeing great strides in health care coverage for many Americans.”
