In December 2023, SSRS conducted eight focus groups with Missourians who are experiencing medical debt to support Missouri Foundation of Health in understanding the impact of medical debt on Missourians’ lives. The goal of the focus groups was to hear from diverse voices on how medical debt affects household finances, health and health care, emotional, mental and physical well-being, and other aspects of people’s lives.
