"For people earning between 138 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty limit, or between $33,000 to $95,000 -- the income range of people who are most likely to buy insurance on the public marketplaces -- more than 23 percent of workers with employer coverage reported having problems paying their medical bills in the last year. For workers even lower on the income spectrum -- who are now eligible for Medicaid coverage in the states that have expanded their programs -- more than 32 percent with employer coverage had struggled to pay their medical bills. But about 9 percent of higher earners also had trouble with health care costs."
