About this collection

The price tag for medical care, already big and getting bigger,  looms over Americans.  Retirees see their savings vanish.  Families face tough and often bewildering choices, and uncertainties over Obamacare only add to the confusion. This special section,  produced in collaboration with American Public Media’s Marketplace, examines the soaring out-of-pocket costs of staying healthy, end-of-life care, and  strategies for picking doctors and health plans.   We also explore what doctors facing death can teach us about dying well.
