More than half of Americans can't afford to spend more than $100 per month on healthcare in 2017, according to a HealthPocket poll.

The results, according to the survey:

  • $100/month or less: 53 percent.
  • $200/month: 16 percent.
  • $300/month: 12 percent.
  • $400/month: 6 percent.
  • $500/month: 5 percent.

Women and millennials are most affected, with 60 percent of each group among those who could pay $100 or less, compared to 47 percent of men, according to the poll.

"Just as was the case in last year's survey, $100 or less is the greatest amount of money most Americans can devote to monthly health insurance premiums," HealthPocket concluded. "This affordability ceiling illuminates the continuing divide in privately purchased health insurance between the subsidized and the unsubsidized."
