Americans are more concerned about having to delay or cancel medical treatment in the next few months, according to a Consumer Healthcare Sentiment Index released Monday by Thomson Retuers.

Overall confidence dropped to a new low in May. Although the monthly tracking report showed a temporary increase in April, the longterm trend has been a steady decline since the report began tracking American attitudes about healthcare in December 2009, according to Gary Pickens, chief research officer with the healthcare and science division at Thomson Reuters.
