CNN analysts estimate that at least 1.5 million Americans will file for bankruptcy this year, for some it will be the result of overspending, but for 60% medical debt will be the leading cause. Over the past 6 years, the number of bankruptcy filings due to medical debt has almost doubled from 46% to 62%.
