July 1, 1996
About 41 million people in the United States, most of them middle-class workers, had trouble getting some type of health care, ranging from surgery to eyeglasses to mental-health care in 1994-95, according to a new study by Project HOPE, a health-care think tank. The survey of 3,450 people in 1994-95 found that dental care was the most difficult for people to obtain. About 8.5 percent reported not being able to get the care when they thought they needed it.
