Forty percent of surveyed uninsured U.S. adults under age 65 said the main reason they do not have health insurance is because it is too expensive, according to a new Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll.

Twenty-six percent of respondents said employment issues were the main reason, while 11% said they do not need insurance, according the poll.

Meanwhile, 4% of respondents said they could not get insurance and 4% said they do not know how to get insurance.

The report is based on a nationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,505 U.S. adults.
