Women in America are struggling to pay for their own healthcare.

A new report from the commonwealth fund shows 38-percent of US women cite high costs for skipping a doctor’s appointment or filling a prescription.

And nearly half — 44-percent — report having some kind of medical bill problem — like an insurance denial.

Compare that to just 2-percent of women in the UK.

In fact — of all the high-income countries — American women have the highest death rates during pregnancy and childbirth.

Health care costs — as well as higher rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease — are all factors.
