    This study examined trends in perceived cost as a barrier to medical care.


    The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System was used to analyze monthly telephone survey data from 45 states.


    Overall, the percentage of persons perceiving cost as a barrier to medical care increased from 1991 until early 1993 and then declined to base-line values in late 1996.

    Perceived cost was a greater barrier in 1996 than in 1991 for persons with low incomes and for those who were unemployed and uninsured.

    For self-employed persons. percentages incrcased until mid-1993 and then remained constant.


    Further efforts are needed to improve access to medical care for socially disadvantaged populations.
