However, most people (4 in 5) say they are comfortable asking their doctor about how much treatment will cost: 43% are “very comfortable,” and 38% somewhat comfortable, About one-half of consumers have asked about cost before a health visit, a percentage that has stayed relatively flat since the Fall 2011.
