Medical Debt Convening

June 10, 2024  1:00-5:00 ET

Americans owe at least $220 billion in medical debt, and one in seven non-elderly adults live in families with past-due medical debt. This widespread indebtedness creates barriers to access, erodes patient-clinician relationships, and drives distrust and inequity.

This convening will bring together representatives from hospitals, health systems and advocacy organizations, researchers, policy experts, and others who have been working to find and implement solutions to the problem of medical debt.
