Your Options After Medical Debt

At our law firm, our attorneys provide cost-effective, expert and personalized strategies for debt relief. We focus on providing effective bankruptcy relief for medical debt in Riverside and other areas of California.

Medical bills may be easy to have dismissed through medical debt. Unlike through other forms of debt, creditors may be less likely to accuse one of fraud or of indulging in high-end goods if medical debt is involved. In addition, bankruptcy judges and trustees understand that medical debt is usually beyond the control of the debtors, and may be a little more lenient and understanding of the need to file for bankruptcy protection.

In filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your debts can possibly be squared away completely. In the event that you’re not eligible for Chapter 7, you can most likely file for Chapter 13, which allows you to make monthly payments for three to five years to pay off as much of the debt back as you can reasonably afford. At the end of that time period, all of your remaining debt will be settled. Many of those that file Chapter 13 end up paying only pennies on the dollar.

Medical Debt Myths

Just like Santa Claus and the Easter bunny, there is no such thing as a “medical bankruptcy.” For many people, there is only Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. If any company tells you that they want to sign you up for “medical bankruptcy” program, you should go another way.
