Get the help you need to solve this problem. Don’t let medical debt overwhelm you because the team at A Fresh Start can help you find peace of mind by solving your medical debt problems.

What is Medical Debt?

The bankruptcy court considers medical debt to be different from other debt because medical debt is “non-consumer debt.” That means if more than half of your debt is medical debt, you do not have to complete the “Means Test” portion of the bankruptcy paperwork. In bankruptcy, medical debt is otherwise just the same as any other type of debt. Filing for bankruptcy because of medical debt is the same as filing bankruptcy for any other type of debt.

However, settling medical debt is different than negotiating other types of debts. People need to be able to turn to their doctors for care in the future. While there is always another bank to get a credit card or a car loan if you can’t pay your doctor, especially one who specializes in a medical condition you have, who will you turn to for care? A Fresh Start has discovered that many individual medical specialists are decent people. We can reach a settlement that can let your doctor continue to care for you.

What Are My Options to Resolving Large Medical Debt?

You have several options to resolve your medical debt. While many hospitals and providers can help you directly to resolve your debt, are they going to explain what option is best for you, or which is best for THEM? Whatever decision you make, the professional team at A Fresh Start works to get the best, most beneficial option for you.

We investigate solutions to resolve your medical debt, such as:

  • Reviewing your billing statements for accuracy: We check your billing statements for errors, such as gaps in your insurance coverage, charges for unnecessary procedures or services you did not receive. Errors on medical bills are common. Without training in medical terminology or knowing medical procedures, you may feel like you are stumbling around in the dark. At A Fresh Start, the professionals understand how medical bills and how they work.
  • The myth of a payment plan: Medical providers and hospitals often will “agree” to “let” you make payments on a large bill, acting as if that is a favor, and their patience is limited. At some point, your account may be referred over to a professional debt collector. As you probably know, having an account go into a collection can destroy once perfect credit. However, what is worse is many hospitals only give you a few weeks to contact them to make payment arrangements. If they don't hear from you right away, you could be sent to collections in as soon as a week after being discharged from hospital care, giving you no chance to make payments. With payments, you generally pay 100% of the amount you owe, even though providers typically give substantial discounts to insurance companies.
  • Debt settlement: You could pay a lot less money if you can offer a lump sum payment. Depending on the amount you owe, this may involve getting a loan or dipping into savings. For example, we might settle a $17,000 medical debt for $3,000. While we cannot guarantee any particular result, when negotiating a settlement, you decide the most you are willing to offer.
  • Bankruptcy: If your medical debt and other debts are enormous, bankruptcy may also be an option. While no one enjoys going into bankruptcy, it can be a logical choice when you are unable to pay back the debt in a reasonable amount of time, especially if you are not likely to have a large amount of medical debt in the future. Bankruptcy should be your final choice, not your first option. At A Fresh Start, we offer credit rebuilding education to all our clients, including those who go into bankruptcy, and most people can bounce back from bankruptcy much sooner than they may have feared.
