Al Jazeera examines how the crisis in US healthcare system affects everyday lives.

    Healthcare has become so expensive in the US that the inability to pay medical bills is a leading cause of bankruptcy.

    In a special four-day series, Al Jazeera will examine healthcare systems in the United States and other countries, to look at some of the best and worst care available.
