Can I Get Rid of Medical Bills in a Bankruptcy?

Health insurance rates are through the roof. Getting sick and having to go to the hospital is even worse. There is no doubt that the health of you and your family comes before anything else and while you’re getting treatment by a hospital or doctor, you’re only focused on getting healthy. The most unfair part of our medical system is the difference in price between what insurance companies pay and what you pay for the same service. Increasingly, medical bills are climbing as the reason that many people have to file for bankruptcy. This year (2020) has been unprecedented in the loss of jobs and reduced income because of the coronavirus. If you or someone you love had to be treated in a hospital for COVID-19 and didn’t have medical insurance or their health insurance didn’t cover everything, the resulting medical bills can be overwhelming.
