The High Cost of Healthcare Is Keeping Patients from Seeking Care

by Roberta Carson, Zaggo, on March 12, 2018

Many Americans cannot afford the high cost of healthcare. It goes without saying that if you have a serious illness or are dealing with a chronic illness, it will be harder for you to improve, or even maintain, your health if you cannot afford doctor visits, medications, tests, and other healthcare expenses. Unfortunately, this is happening all too often in the US as many patients struggle with the high cost of healthcare.
