Summary/Abstract

The White House in April announced steps to try to lessen the burden of medical debt on patients and families, including holding providers and debt collectors accountable for harmful actions. Part of the effort is a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) initiative to evaluate how providers’ billing practices affect healthcare access and affordability along with the accrual of medical debt.
