I recently shared in an interview with insidePatientFinance.com, a personal experience of how my household was affected by privatized Medicare.
The online business publication reports news and follows trends that affects health care finance. So its readers may find my book “Who Will Take Care of Mom? an interesting read.
Like myself, health care finance professionals recognize that adult children caring for elderly parents is a growing trend. So is the trend of states making adult children responsible for their indigent parents health care debt.
Although I was not legally responsible for my mother’s debt, I’m grateful that I was able to pay the hospital and nursing home bills she accumulated during her stay after a serious accident several years ago. However, many families, would not have been able to do so. And many, including myself, will not be able to take on that kind of financial responsibility in the future given other family and financial obligations.
