The country with the most medical bankruptcies probably won’t shock you too much, but the reason why, should definitely shock you! For over a century now, medical bills have gone up and up and up. Why? Because hospitals can bill your insurance and also bill you, anything they want to. And there’s nothing you can do to stop them.
Many Patients Sue Hospitals Every Day, But The Legal Bills Cost Too Much, Too!
The medical system is designed to keep you sick and keep you oppressed. When an entire industry has the backing of the entire US government, unless you are a government yourself, there is no way you will ever prevent outrageous medical bills.
Some Simple Stats About Medical Bills Here According To The National Bankruptcy Forum.
1. Per capita, the U.S. spends more per person on health care than any other country.
The United States spends more than $9,000 per person on health care. While this might initially sound like a good thing, it’s not — despite its high spending, our country doesn’t have the best health outcomes. For instance, the U.S. ranks 12th in life expectancy among the 12 wealthiest industrialized countries.
2. A $500 unexpected medical bill is too much to pay for many people.
According to a Kaiser Health Tracking Poll in 2017, 45% of Americans said they’d have a difficult time paying an unexpected $500 medical bill. About 19% wouldn’t be able to pay it at all, while 20% would put it on a credit card and pay it over time. Others said they’d need to borrow money from a friend, a family member, a bank, or a payday lender.
3. Meanwhile, 1 in 5 working-age Americans with health insurance have trouble paying off their medical bills.
According to a Kaiser Family Foundation and New York Times survey conducted in 2016, 20% of Americans with health insurance found that when trying to pay off their medical bills, they had serious financial challenges and even changes in employment and lifestyle. For those uninsured, the number rose to 53%. Although it’s clear insurance helped in terms of people’s ability to make payments, about the same amount of people — insured and uninsured alike — still said their medical bills had a huge effect on their families.
4. More than 60% of insured Americans with medical bills blow through most or all of their savings.
From that same survey, people with health insurance still make sacrifices to pay their medical bills, including going through their savings. Many also take on an extra job or work more hours (42% of respondents) or borrow money from family or friends (37%). Eleven percent seek the aid of a charity.
5. Despite ACA, health insurance has become less affordable since 2015.
More people with health insurance have had a difficult time affording their health care since 2015. For premiums in 2017, 37% now find it difficult to pay versus 27% just two years ago. Meanwhile, 43% are having a hard time paying their deductibles in 2017 while just 34% were struggling in 2015. And finally, copays and prescription drugs seriously affected 31% of people in 2017 versus 24% in 2015.
