It is estimated that approximately half of all Americans have incurred medical debt, totaling nearly $140 billion and affecting approximately one in five households. Medical debt prevents millions of people from achieving financial stability and negatively impacts their health outcomes and emotional wellbeing. Recent reports have found that medical debt is higher and more concentrated in communities of color, due to inequitable policies and practices that reinforce the racial wealth gap. 


  • Expert viewpoints on the problem of medical debt and the people most at risk
  • Potential points of engagement for philanthropy
