Sept. 14, 1 p.m. ET: A double whammy – Medical debt and COVID

Those directly affected by the pandemic also had more problems paying their medical bills, according to a survey by The Commonwealth Fund.  Close to half of those in the survey said they had been directly affected by the pandemic in at least one of three ways: getting COVID-19, losing income, or losing employer coverage. One-third reported lost income. More than one-third of insured adults and half of uninsured adults reported they had problems paying medical bills or were paying off medical debt during the prior year.

Sara Collins, Vice President of Health Care Coverage and Access at The Commonwealth Fund, will discuss these and other findings and what they mean for a robust economic recovery in a telebriefing Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. with Washington Post health care reporter Yasmeen Abutaleb. Abutaleb is co-author of the bestselling book “Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History.”

This webinar is produced in partnership with The Commonwealth Fund.
