Predatory billing by U.S. hospitals

A new Axios Special Report, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University, sheds light on some of the predatory practices American hospitals are using to collect patients' debt. Medical debt makes up 58% of all debt collections in the U.S. and has caused hundreds of thousands of Americans to file for bankruptcy.

  • Plus, the overlooked role of Latinos in the LGBTQ civil rights movement.
  • And, the home ownership gap widens.

Guests: Axios' Caitlin Owens, Russell Contreras, and Nick Halter.
