These consumers often must rely on regular credit cards, then turn to other sources such as home equity, retirement savings and friends and family when they reach their credit limit. To a limited extent, health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts have helped consumers save money to meet their medical expenses, but the need for additional solutions far outweighs these programs’ capacity.
