One in Five Struggles To Pay Medical Bills

If you’ve ever wondered about the high rate of medical bankruptcy in this country, it’s not hard to see how it starts:

A new government report finds about one in five Americans face problems paying their medical bills, but things may be improving.

Statisticians at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics reviewed government survey data, and found 20.3 percent of U.S. adults under 65 had troubles paying medical expenses during the first six months of 2012. That’s down though, from 21.7 percent during the first six months of the previous year. The new statistics, however, still reflect that more than 54 million Americans are facing troubles meeting medical costs.
