‘Teen Mom 2’ star Leah Calvert recently opened up to In Touch Magazine about her financial struggles due to medical bills for her daughter Ali who has ‘Muscular Dystrophy.’ It’s been a rocky road leading to that diagnosis, Ali has been to countless doctor appointments and therapy sessions. Those visits add up and it looks like the reality of that debt is hitting Leah hard.
“It’s stressful because insurance doesn’t cover the whole cost. One bill alone was $20,000,” Leah says. “Ali is really smart and she’s well aware of her disease, but she doesn’t let it burden her.”
Leah and husband Jeremy have been pretty open about Jeremy’s high paying job, claiming at one point that he makes nearly 20K a month. You wouldn’t expect for them to be struggling with paying for medical bills by looking at their current lifestyle. Leah and Jeremy have new vehicles (plus one they bought for Leah’s sister), a home, new clothes, Leah’s hair and nails are always getting done. Clearly they aren’t in any real financial danger at the moment. I’m sure they are doing what they need to do to plan for their financial future. We all know from watching ‘Teen Mom 2’ that Jeremy works hard to take care of Leah and the girls so I’m sure they will get it all figured out!
