Nobody intends to get sick or injured. And virtually no one can afford to pay massive medical bills on their own. Even if you have good health insurance, there is never a guarantee that your specialist visits, hospital bills, imaging and testing charges and drug costs will be covered.
As we know from news reports and social media posts, the problematic uncertainty in our health care system is what leads to financial catastrophe for countless families. Thank God for the many aspects of bankruptcy protection provided by federal law.
Can You Really Get Rid Of My Medical Debt In Chapter 7?
Yes, you can. If you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can discharge (and essentially eradicate) unsecured debts like medical debt and credit card debt.
