ABSTRACT
The author addresses the issue of medical bankruptcy in the U.S. amid health care reform. She references a study by M. Dulitz on the trade-offs made by farmers in South Dakota to balance costs and benefits within a health care system. The effect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on medical bankruptcy is assessed. However, the author recognizes some provisions of health care reform, including the inability of insurers to cancel coverage when a person gets ill.
