UNITED STATES - Women in America are struggling to pay for their own healthcare.
A new report from the Commonwealth Fund shows 38 percent of U.S. women cite high costs for skipping a doctor's appointment or filling a prescription.
And nearly half - 44 percent - report having some kind of medical bill problem, like an insurance denial.
Compare that to just 2 percent of women in the U.K.
In fact, of all the high-income countries, American women have the highest death rates during pregnancy and childbirth.
Healthcare costs, as well as higher rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, are all factors.
