Medical $ Burden USA Kaiser Family Foundation and NYT Recent Survey
"Overall, about a quarter (26 percent) of U.S. adults ages 18-64 say they or someone in their household had problems paying or an inability to pay medical bills in the past 12 months. Though certain groups are more likely than others to report such problems, the survey finds that people from all walks of life can and do experience difficulty paying medical bills." Notice the age only goes to 64 years. At age 65 Americans have access to Medicare!
