Study finds Americans go to doctor less because of cost

A new study shows a growing number of Americans are skipping needed medical care because they can't afford it.

The Commonwealth Fund survey found 80 million people didn't go to the doctor or access other medical services last year because of the cost. That's 5 million more than two years ago and 17 million more than in 2003.

The numbers are expected to improve as more health care reform provisions take effect in 2014.
