Kaiser Family Foundation on ACA and Medical Debt

posted by Bob Lawless

I'm on the road and only have time to link to the USA Today story about the Kaiser Family Foundation report on how medical debt might look like after the Affordable Care Act. Short version: high deductibles and co-pays may mean not a lot of difference for those enrolled in the cheapest bronze level plans. Credit Slips readers will want to check it out.


Looks like not much relief follows after the Affordable Care Act. As fas as I know many young Americans have made up their minds not to take Medical insurance in the nearest time, because of the cost actually. Young people nowadays face problems with student loans, medical care insurance becomes more expensive, unemployment problem remains. Looks like the state is only concerned how to make money on its people.
