Unmet health care needs provide a measure of access to health care services that focuses on individuals' experiences accessing care. Individuals were asked whether there was a time in the previous 12 months that they felt they needed health care services but did not receive them.

Overall, slightly more Americans than Canadians reported an unmet health care need (13% vs. 11%). The difference was much higher when Canadians were compared with uninsured Americans (11% vs. 40%). There was no significant difference in unmet health care needs between Canadians and insured Americans (11% vs. 10%). (Chart 13 - Table A.14) When asked about the reasons for having an unmet health care need, most Canadians who experienced an unmet health care need reported that long waiting times for care was the primary barrier (32%) while most Americans cited cost (53%). Cost was the primary barrier cited in the U.S. regardless of insurance status.

In both countries, those with lower incomes experienced higher levels of unmet needs compared with those with higher incomes. However, significantly more Americans in the lowest income quintile reported an unmet health care need than low income Canadians (27% vs. 17%). There was no difference in the rate of unmet health care needs among those with higher incomes. The gap in unmet health care needs between the highest and lowest income group was significantly higher in the U.S. (17 percentagepoints compared with Canada (8 percentage points).
