The Crushing Weight Of Medical Debt

No one plans on suffering a catastrophic injury or developing a serious illness. These things simply happen without warning. And even though health insurance can cover some portion of a person’s medical bills, it is usually not enough to cover all of a person’s expenses, meaning they are often left trying to manage their recovery while facing steep medical bills too.

At our law firm, Schwartz Bankruptcy Law Center, we know the fear and frustration medical debts cause, and we understand that it has probably left you feeling like you can’t catch up on their doctors’ bills and hospital expenses. We don’t believe that anyone should have to suffer needlessly under medical debt, which is why we offer smart solutions that help everyday people manage their debt and take control of their lives once more.

Your Options For Managing Your Debt

Depending on your eligibility and the type of bankruptcy you qualify for, you may be able to discharge all or some of your medical bills, allowing you to move on with your life. Your two options are:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy: This allows you to discharge all of your medical debt along with any other unsecured debts (with some exceptions). Though there is no limit to the amount of debt you can discharge, your disposable income must be low enough to pass a means test, which will determine your eligibility for debt relief.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy: This allows you to restructure your medical debt, making it easier to pay back over time.
