Serious illness spells financial fallout for many

St. Louis Post-Dispatch, February 6, 2008
Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed said they or their family would face a financial hardship if they experienced a serious illness, according to a nation poll by CreditCards.com. The figure jumped to 73 percent for families earning less than $30,000. And if hit with medical bills greater than $1,000, nearly half of those polled said they would tap savings or checking accounts to pay their debts.
