A new federal report says Americans ages 18 to 64 are going to the doctor less now than they did 10 years ago.
The new report from the Census Bureau shows that doctor visits declined from 4.8 visits in 2001 to 3.9 visits in 2010, according to a New York Times report .
The report revealed that the number of working-age Americans without health insurance increased over the last decade from 17 percent to 21.8 percent. It also found that more than one-third of people living in poverty did not visit a medical provider at all in 2010.
