More Californians are receiving care via telehealth than last year, according to an annual survey of healthcare trends by the California Health Care Foundation. More than half (55%) of survey participants reported receiving care by phone in the last 12 months, an increase from 45% in last year’s poll, and more than 4 in 10 (44%) by video, an increase from 35%.
Californians are satisfied with the quality of healthcare they receive via telehealth, with more than 8 in 10 (83%) “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with their care by video, and a similar proportion (79%) “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with care by phone.
The survey also asked participants about their views on healthcare costs, problems paying medical bills and perceptions of inequitable treatment of non-Whites by healthcare providers.
