Miriam, a resourceful single parent, thought the battle was over when she survived cancer and had a job with insurance. But then she lost her job during COVID, and old cancer treatment bills were sent to collections.
Z.B. had been recently discharged from the hospital with COVID-19 when the bills started arriving. Altogether, she owes $30,000 in medical bills from the five days she spent tethered to an oxygen tank, struggling to breathe, as she was treated for COVID pneumonia.
