Medical debt top cause of bankruptcy

Of those who file for bankruptcy in Illinois and throughout the country, roughly 66.5% do so because of medical bills. Individuals file either because of the medical debt itself or because of a lack of income caused by time spent out of work. This is according to a study that was published in the American Journal of Public Health. It found that the Affordable Care Act has done little to reduce the number of bankruptcies related to medical costs.

Protecting your interests when involved in a boundary dispute
