As of Thursday, June 18, a mind-blowing 47.5MM have filed jobless claims in the U.S. since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. For these Americans, that can mean losing health insurance, reliable income and the means to pay for everyday expenses. As doctors and hospitals open for elective procedures, MDsave is making sure that these workers and their families aren’t left without medical care.
