Dealing With Medical Debt

A medical emergency or serious illness in the family often leads to financial problems for many people. Whether you have medical insurance or not, medical bills can quickly pile up. Medical debt is frequently the cause of financial strain. Medical debt alone may be the issue for an individual who has always paid his or her bills on time. In other situations, medical bills add significantly to overall debt, making it impossible to make ends meet. Frequently, individuals with large medical bills turn to credit cards in an effort to manage excessive medical bills — only to fall further into debt.

There Are No Special Rules For Medical Debt In The Bankruptcy Code

There is no special provision or rules for dealing with medical debt in bankruptcy — medical debt is generally treated just like any other unsecured debt. At the Law Offices of Robert H.
