Take NerdWallet Health Vice President Christina LaMontagne’s word for it.
“A lot of Americans are struggling with medical bills,” she said.
NerdWallet, a website featured on The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNNMoney and more, describes themselves as “nerds who create great tools, crunch numbers and give you all the results — unfiltered and unbiased.”
It’s not only the uninsured, but people covered by health insurance are feeling the weight of medical bills.
This seems to be the result of high-deductible insurance plans that require users to pay more out-of-pocket costs.
“With an average American family bringing home $50,000 in income, a high medical bill and a high-deductible insurance plan can quickly become something they are unable to pay,” LaMontagne said. “If you have an out-of-pocket maximum of $5,000 or $10,000, that’s really tough.”
