The Oregon State Public Research Group has released a report on bankruptcies and medical debt within the state. The findings show that in counties with bankruptcy filings, such as Multnomah County, 52% of them had some form of medical debt involved, while others like Linn County have up to 69%. We hear from Francis Wong, Postdoctoral Fellow at NBER, on his research regarding the state of U.S. medical debt.
