Helpful Information About Medical Debt
What Exactly Is Medical Debt?
Strategies for Facing Medical Debt
One of the biggest causes of bankruptcy is medical debt. The sad part is, the majority of people that are forced into bankruptcy had medical insurance. Medical debt is known as “unsecured debt” and can be discharged during bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is not the only option however. Here are a few other strategies for dealing with medical debt.
Talk to the Hospital
Many hospitals and medical providers will work with you on a payment plan. Create a monthly budget and work out how much you will be able to pay per month. Discuss this with your hospital’s financial department. Many hospitals will not charge interest for the first year and will not send your bill to collections if you have a set payment plan. They may also cut you a discount if you do not have insurance. Never underestimate the power of a phone call.
Fight the Insurance Company
If your debt is largely in part because of your insurance denying coverage, you can appeal their decision. This is difficult and may require the help of an attorney. If they still deny, you may be stuck with legal bills in addition to your medical bills.
