An online private health insurance marketplace released results from a new survey on Wednesday that found that people confidence in the government's handling of the COVID crisis has decreased rather than increased in the past year (38% vs. 26%), and nearly three in ten report that they have had difficulty accessing COVID tests in the past six months.

The report from eHealth Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH, Forum) also stated that nearly half (48%) of respondents said they disapprove of the government’s handling of the omicron variant. Fewer than half (47%) say they would comply with open-ended COVID booster recommendations from government or medical authorities. If elections were held today, 78% say the government's handling of the COVID crisis would be among their top three priorities, compared to only 46% in November of 2020.

A quarter (25%) said they had skipped getting tested because it was hard for them to find testing options. Respondents were more likely to express concern about not having access to medical care for non-COVID needs (78%) than about contracting the omicron variant (74%).

The survey was conducted in January 2022 collecting responses from a total of 1,077 people. Do these findings align with your own thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
