All I can say about 'medical bankruptcies' is this:

Before Obamacare got shoved down everyone's throats, I was doing fine finacially, even with two pre-existing conditions.

Since Obamacare, my premiums have tripled and my deductible has quadrupled. The extra amount alone could have financed a second house.

Remember the ObaMao quote that those who were lucky in the genetics lottery and didn't get sick needed to contribute to those who weren't so lucky? Once you drilled down into that statement, what he really meant is that those of us who refrained from sticking drugs up our nose or were able to drink in moderation or not at all needed to subsidize the substance abusers.

It is no coincidence that substance abuse and all the costs associated with it have gone through the roof ever since ObaMaoCare was enacted to subsidize said lifestyle.

I think the deductible side of this discussion will be the final stumbling block. Might take five to seven years, but I think the average guy will just say that he can’t cover the yearly deductible anymore, without it bringing him or his family into serious financial issues. At that point, single-payer Medicare-like insurance will be the only solution left. Marginalized care will have arrived and people will wonder how we stumbled into this pit.
