100 Million People in America Are Saddled With Health Care Debt

A recent investigation by Kaiser Health News and NPR reveals that 100 million Americans have significant medical debt. This is far more pervasive than previously reported.

“Debt is no longer just a bug in our system. It is one of the main products,” said Dr. Rishi Manchanda, who has worked with low-income patients in California for more than a decade and served on the board of the nonprofit RIP Medical Debt. “We have a health care system almost perfectly designed to create debt.”
