Discharging Doctor, Clinic And Hospital Bills In Bankruptcy

A serious illness or accident can put you in the hospital for months and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Follow-up appointments, medications, therapies and other expenses can create a financial crisis, even if you have health insurance. Fortunately, there are solutions.

You Can Free Yourself From Medical Debt

Medical debt is "unsecured debt." This means the only penalties for not paying it are harassment from creditors, late fees and the possibility of being sued for the amount you owe. By contrast, "secured debt" is when you put up collateral such as your house or your car, which can be taken from you if you do not pay the debt.

Unsecured debt such as medical bills and credit card debt can be discharged in a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This removes the financial burden from your shoulders and gives you an opportunity to get back on track.

At Levitt & Slafkes, P.C., our attorneys will discuss your financial situation with you and find the best solution for your unique circumstances. We are honest about all of your options and guide you step by step through the entire process.
