In this photo taken Wednesday, June 5, 2013, Justin Farman, a nursing student from Watertown in upstate New York, poses for a portrait at his Watertown apartment. Farman was diagnosed with a blood cancer last fall, when he was uninsured, and is now fending off collection agencies pursuing some of the approximately $50,000 in bills he has accumulated due to his illness. Huge list prices charged by hospitals are getting increasing attention, but a federal law meant to limit what the most financially vulnerable consumers can be billed doesn’t seem to be making much difference.
