You Think You're Covered

From Mental Floss: "Being underinsured can be as disastrous as being uninsured when a health crisis hits. Half of all bankruptcies are due to medical costs, and three-quarters of those are people with health insurance."

My sister filed for medical bankruptcy, recently. Battling cancer for years, I can't imagine there's an affordable (for her) insurance out there that would have covered the mass of medical bills she's incurred so far. Ugh.

That's so rough. I feel for your sister and anyone else who finds themselves with mountains of debt through no fault of their own.
