Make sure and check out Stephen’s new legal challenge series that runs every weekday morning at 7:30am on KQCA-MY58 TV. These weekly topics will extend into the radio show where we explore them in more depth. This week’s show will cover:

What is the most common cause of Bankruptcy filing? Per a report from the American Journal of Medicine last year, “As recently as 1981, only 8 percent of families filing for bankruptcy cited medical reasons. By 2010, when the Affordable Care Act was passed, medical bankruptcy was all-to-common. A 2009 study by Himmelstein et al, published in The American Journal of Medicine, revealed that 62.1% of all bankruptcies had a medical cause.” In a study by the Kaiser Foundation in 2015, “Workers’ share of health insurance premiums for their families rose 83 percent from 2005 to 2015, and the amount employees had to pay for deductibles for individual insurance increased 255 percent from 2006 to 2015. The increases are far higher than growth in workers’ wages,” especially in the first half of that period the country was in the worst Recession it had seen in decades. Continued healthcare reform is critical to helping stabilize the economy and help Americans weather medical storms in their lives without it devastating them financially.
