Saving Money: An Overview
A dollar saved is worth more than a dollar earned.
We provide information about saving money in the following areas because money is so important in the new normal that exists after a diagnosis - even for people who have health insurance. Studies indicate that over 50% of the personal bankruptcies in the U.S. are due to medical expenses, and over 75% of those people have health insurance.
