PIcture of NPR-Doctors Get Put On Hold Trying to Find Out Who's InsuredNPR – Medical Debt Rains Pain On Families, Even In the Sunshine State

This interesting article covers a taboo topic, debt patients go into to pay necessary medical coverage. Sure there is Medicare and Medicaid for the elderly/poor, but they do not cover all medical bills surprisingly. There is also health insurance whether through an employer, individually bought or through a health exchange.

According to an NPR, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard Chan School of Public Health, having health insurance was no guarantee of not going into debt to pay for medical expenses. Some people forgo necessities to pay these bills and still it is not enough. One in five Americans has medical debt on their credit report per the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. In fact, this number is most likely under counted.
