For years, Texas has had the highest uninsured rate in the country. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, many Texans lost health insurance when they were laid off from their jobs. The combination of a devastating public health event, the widespread loss of work, and the already-large share of uninsured people has created a perfect storm for medical debt. This event will convene funders, hospital system representatives, state and local policymakers, and community organizations that work on medical debt. Together, we will identify the scope of the problem as well as steps we can collectively take to address it.
