Can I Get Rid of my Medical Bills in Bankruptcy?
The cost of medical bills can be overwhelming, especially when it is not covered by insurance or other financial aid. For some, filing for bankruptcy may be the way to get back on their feet and have a fresh start. But is it possible to eliminate medical debts in bankruptcy?
When considering bankruptcy, there are several factors that must be taken into account such as whether you are eligible for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. In general, filing for either type of bankruptcy allows you to discharge most unsecured debts including medical bills. However, if the debt has been recently incurred or if it was a result of fraud, the debt may not be able to be discharged through either filing. Furthermore, certain types of income-based repayment plans that allow individuals to pay off their medical bills over a period of time may also prevent them from being discharged in a bankruptcy case.
