I really like this paper and recommend it Tim! In addition to what the authors have written about it, the thing that seems particularly compelling to me about this paper is the description of how doctors and patient-debtors act in the context of medical debt. The article draws on health care consultants’ advice and current legal distinctions to offer a rich account of why doctors push patients towards third party creditors, and it presents evidence that patients often actually pay off medical debt owed to doctors (which is contrary to what health consultants think). For people interested in consumer credit, both of those points seem noteworthy.
