Personal bankruptcies driven by COVID 19 healthcare costs


Has anyone seen a projection of the number of personal bankruptcies that will come about due to COVID 19 healthcare costs? A couple of weeks in the ICU must cost around $500,000, well beyond most folks' capacity to pay. There are quite a few Americans without adequate health insurance, and plenty examples of hospital-bill "sticker shock."

A corollary--can / will insurance companies limit their coverage in a pandemic?
