  Original Published: 4/30/2013  A new study found a growing number of Americans are skipping needed medical care because they can't afford it.   The Commonwealth Fund survey found 80-million people didn't go to the doctor or access other medical services last year because of the cost.    That's 5-million more that two years ago.   Those who were uninsured or had inadequate health insurance were most likely to have trouble affording care.   The numbers are expected to improve as more health care reform provisions take effect next year.
