Have You Delayed Getting Proper Healthcare Because of Cost?

Great article out of the Wall Street Journal today that says more Americans are delaying health care because of costs.

"About 20% of the respondents in a 2007 survey of 18,000 people said that they had put off or gone without needed medical treatment at some point in the year earlier, up from 14% in a 2003 survey."

Were you one of those people? If so, what did you delay? What are you waiting for? Better health insurance? To qualify for Medicare? Other?
