Nearly half of millennials have delayed medical care because they can't afford it.
That's according to a new survey by Insider and Morning Consult that polled 2,096 Americans about their financial health, debt, and earnings for a new series, "The State of Our Money." More than 670 respondents were millennials, defined as ages 23 to 38 in 2019.
The survey found that 49% of millennials have had to delay medical or dental care as a result of their finances. That's more than any other generation who responded to the question. Despite having three decades more of life, only 42% of boomers said they'd had to do that.
