Almost half of the projects on GoFundMe, the fundraising website, are to pay for medical bills. That’s $930m out of $2bn (Source: Business Insider).
That’s over 250,000 campaigns a year, raising $450m per year (Source: GoFundMe).
Another way to look at this, is that consumers now prefer to have cheaper, or no insurance, and raise funds after a claim would have arisen.
Note: this applies to the UK, not just the US.
