Paying for medical care can be tough, but most people in Texas hope that they will be able to tackle bills as they arise. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. Millions of people in America are struggling with medical debt. While most people truly want to pay off these debts and move on with their lives, doing so can be easier said than done.
New research from the American Cancer Society documented that over 137 Americans are having trouble paying off their medical bills. While it is not secret that many people struggle with paying for their medical care, this recent research highlights just how widespread the problem is. Perhaps even more upsetting is that 42% of all cancer patients run through their life savings only two years within receiving treatment.
