Driven by data from a new study showing that 66.5% of all bankruptcies are tied to medical issues due to the high cost of care, a Nebraska doctor has developed a program in his practice that helps needy patients pay for surgery with volunteer work.
“For years, I had been doing surgery for patients and taking care of their health problems, taking care of their medical problems, and then I would find out months later, sometimes years later, in fixing their medical problem I had caused or contributed to their financial ruin,” said Aguila, who’s also a US Air Force veteran, in an interview with 1011 Now. “I need to be able to look myself in the mirror at night and know that I’m taking good care of my patients.”
