35.8% of Americans would use an Amazon health insurance plan

Amazon has shaken up the healthcare industry by launching a line of over-the-counter healthcare products and partnering with JPMorgan Chase and Berkshire Hathaway to create an independent healthcare company.

If Amazon continued its venture into healthcare by launching health plans or providing prescription medications, many consumers would support that move, according to a recent poll by LendEDU of 1,000 consumers who purchased something from Amazon in the past 30 days.

The survey revealed 35.8 percent of consumers would use an Amazon health insurance plan, and 54.7 percent would trust Amazon to provide them with over-the-counter and prescription medicine.
