With the nation’s economy in freefall, and millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet, Americans are facing an increasing number of unexpected expenses and challenges, according to a new report.
Many are coping with the devastating economic downturn by going without essential medical care and relying on the government’s Medicaid program for health care.
Now the federal government is warning that millions of families who depend on Medicaid may not be able to afford the medications they need, and could be left destitute and without medical care.
This is the report from the Institute of Medicine that provides a snapshot of how many Americans rely on Medicaid, the federal program that provides health insurance for the poor and disabled.
It’s based on a new analysis by the Institute, which found that millions are struggling to keep up with medical bills and that many are forced to go without medication as a result of their families’ financial hardships.
The report found that in a recent survey, 57 percent of the 2,200 respondents said they were experiencing some level of anxiety.
And of those who did not have a medical condition, almost half of them said they had been told that they could not afford the medicine they needed.
In addition, just 16 percent of Americans who were enrolled in Medicaid said that they had enough money to pay for their medications, according the report.
The Medicaid program covers the costs of prescription drugs and other medical care for people with disabilities and other low-income people.
The government says Medicaid is designed to help low- and moderate-income families afford the medication needed to help them manage their health care costs, including prescription drugs.
The program pays for about 90 percent of hospitalization costs for people who qualify.
It is also a key component of Medicaid’s expansion program for low-wage workers.
The institute found that more than one-third of Medicaid enrollees said they are struggling with their medical expenses and that nearly half have had to turn to other methods to pay the bills.
But some are not being able to do so because they can’t afford the prescriptions.
Some are forced out of the program because of their health problems or because their insurance has lapsed.
Others, like the family of a 19-year-old Florida man who was forced to drop out of school and go into private practice because of a debilitating health condition, are struggling financially.
The family’s insurance did not cover his medication, so he had to use Medicaid to pay bills, according a statement from the Florida Department of Children and Families.
But he says he will not be taking advantage of the state’s expansion, because he will only be able take advantage of Medicaid if he has to pay $10,000 in annual premiums to get the medication.
That will cost him $5,200 a year, the family’s attorney, Robert N. Higgs, told the Miami Herald.
The teen’s attorney also said that the family is considering suing the federal agency that runs the program, which he said has “no idea” what is happening to the young man.
A federal appeals court recently ruled that the federal Medicaid program cannot be terminated because it is a government program, not a private one.
The federal government has been able to cancel the program due to budget cuts, but the administration has not explained why it has not done so.
In a statement, the Federal Medicaid Service, which oversees the program in 36 states and the District of Columbia, said the agency is working with states to ensure that the families in question are able to access necessary medication.
The service said that a review of the case shows that there is an appropriate, cost-effective alternative for all patients, and the decision to end Medicaid is not based on any bias against any individual or organization.
The agency said it will work with states, health care providers, and other stakeholders to ensure the program is fully available for families and individuals with serious medical conditions.
The issue of medical bills has been a big one for many Americans.
According to the latest national survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, nearly 7 in 10 Americans said they paid bills that totaled more than $200 this year.
The number is nearly double the average amount paid for a year of Medicare or Medicaid in 2015.
And in the first quarter of this year, about 18 percent of all Americans said that their health insurance coverage had been canceled.
But experts say there are some people who have been left out of this mess because they cannot afford to pay their medical bills.
In the meantime, families are finding it increasingly difficult to afford medical care, especially if they have a long-term illness, said Amy Bowers, a spokesperson for the advocacy group Families USA.
The group has taken to Twitter to offer support for families who have found themselves in this situation.
