Georgia hospitals, doctors' offices, surgeons in financial pain as bills go unpaid or patients postpone treatment
Georgia hospitals, doctors, and other medical providers are reporting financial pain from an increase in patients who can't pay bills, or who postpone care. That trend stems, in part, from the rise in Georgia's unemployment rate, which has swelled the ranks of those without health insurance. In addition, as many Americans who have insurance face higher deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs, it makes medical bills harder to pay.
