Recent research from the Kaiser Family Foundation has revealed that just over a quarter of American adults (ages 18-64) say they or someone in their household struggled to pay their medical bills over the past 12 months. These payment problems impact all kinds of people, regardless of household income or insurance status.
This chart shows the percentage saying they/someone in their household struggled to pay medical bills in the past year.
