Patient protections needed from medical credit cards

U.S. PIRG files comments relating to financial products for medical services. This relatively new version of a credit card, marketed specifically for health care services and products, usually lures in applicants with promises of a promotional 0% APR for an introductory period of 6-18 months. What is not always evident to the applicant is the more complex terms of the financial agreement.

PIRG urges Congress to approve COVID-19 funding

As we approach the grim milestone of 1 million Americans dead from COVID-19, we have a chance to put the worst of the crisis behind us. We can only do it if Congress approves additional funding to maintain all of the virus-fighting tools at our disposal.
