Even the Insured Struggle to Pay Medical Bills
When you transfer medical debt to credit cards, you don’t reduce your debt—in most cases, you simply increase your interest rates. More powerful solutions are available.
Can bankruptcy help resolve my medical debt?
Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help resolve your medical debt:
- Under a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all of your medical debt will be eliminated. If you are facing extreme medical debt, this could be the best option for you. Our attorneys can help you in this process. Visit our Chapter 7 bankruptcy page to learn more about liquidation bankruptcy and the means tests.
- In Chapter 13 bankruptcy, debt is reorganized and the filer has the opportunity to repay what he or she owes in smaller sums over a longer period of time. Many times, bills can be partially discharged through Chapter 13. Talk to a lawyer in the Detroit, Michigan area about this option.
