Medical debt during pandemic

JAMA Network

About The Study: Researchers found no evidence of a net association between the COVID-19 pandemic and medical debt, overall or across areas with different incomes and pandemic severity, results that are consistent with any increase being offset by decreases in elective medical procedures and new health care–related governmental policies.

Authors: Neale Mahoney, Ph.D., of Stanford University in Stanford, California, is the corresponding author.
