Americans Likely Owe Hundreds of Billions of Dollars in Total Medical Debt. A new KFF analysis of government data estimates that nearly 1 in 10 adults (9%) – or roughly 23 million people – owe medical debt.

Today I brought on Marshall Allen who is an author and educator who helps you to protect yourself from egregious health care costs. He has spent more than fifteen years investigating the health care industry as a journalist, exposing the insidious ways the system preys on vulnerable Americans: price gouging, sloppy billing, fraud, insurance denials, unnecessary treatment, and more.

If you have medical debt or are afraid of it, this is a must listen to episode!
