The Worry No More report data shows that pre-existing conditions do not discriminate. More than 1 in 4 non-elderly Ohioans has a pre-existing condition. For Ohioans aged 55-64, 1 in 2 has a pre-existing condition.
Poor, middle class and higher income Ohioans have similar rates of pre-existing conditions. People in rural, urban, and suburban areas have pre-existing conditions. And, Ohioans of all races experience pre-existing conditions with white Ohioans having a slightly higher rate of 29%.
