Originally appearing in USA Today on May 9, 2023, Hanna Horvath and Jenn Jones quotes John Rao in coverage of the impact of medical debt on consumers and whether bankruptcy can help.

“It’s not just about the actual medical bill. It’s also all the other bills that can’t get paid while you deal with medical debt. It’s the loss of income if you lose your job due to an illness.”

John Rao, senior attorney with the National Consumer Law Center.
