Medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy filings in the US. An accident or serious illness can generate tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses. Even if you have health insurance, the cost of co-pays, deductibles and uncovered procedures can quickly become unmanageable.

In many cases, a bankruptcy is a good way for people with medical debt to get a financial fresh start.

Bankruptcy Can Put an End to Medical Bill Debt

The good news is that medical bill debt is usually considered an unsecured form of debt. With unsecured debt, there is no tangible property or collateral to secure the amount owed, leaving nothing for the creditor to repossess. This means that the bills are typically eligible for discharge under both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

Whether an insurance claim was denied or you had no insurance, medical expenses can easily become overwhelming. We will review all of your debts, assets and income and discuss whether bankruptcy is right for you. If it is, we will help you decide which chapter will best meet your needs.

If you are being harassed by bill collectors because of your medical debt, bankruptcy will stop it. Filing for bankruptcy gives you an automatic stay from creditor harassment and collection actions. Creditors will no longer be allowed to contact you by phone, letter or in person.
