Adults in the U.S. are most likely to have medical bill problems, regardless of income

Statistic Info

In the U.S., nearly half of adults, regardless of income, reported having a medical bill problem in the past year, which includes having problems paying a medical bill or being unable to do so; spending a lot of time on paperwork or disputes related to medical bills; or having insurance deny payment for medical care or not paying as much as the respondent expected. It should be noted that this definition does not include medical debt, which is known to be a significant challenge in the U.S.6
