Five Healthcare Questions You Must Answer Before You Retire – NASDAQ.com

In 2009, roughly 1.5 million Americans filed for bankruptcy. Most of them were middle-class, well-educated homeowners, just like you. Do you know what caused most of those bankruptcies? It wasn’t a fancy adjustable rate mortgage or backlash from the financial crisis. According to a study published in the August 2009 American Journal of Medicine, more than 60% of bankruptcies have their root cause in medical bills.

“Unless you’re a Warren Buffett or Bill Gates, you’re one illness away from financial ruin in this country,” says Harvard researcher and lead author Steffie Woolhandler, M.D. Or, as one of my clients, a physician, said to me, “You are just one step away from the banana peel!”
