Medical Debt

Getting Your Life Back After Illness Puts You in Debt

When people are hurt or get sick and do not have health insurance, they can accumulate serious medical expenses and debt that can be devastating. Even a single emergency room visit can be too costly for many people to afford without insurance. When you are dealing with the thousands of dollars in debt that is threatening to derail your financial health, it is important to seek a way out.

Medical debt can be discharged in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The Tampa bankruptcy lawyers at the Debt Relief Legal Group in Tampa can guide you through the legal process of bankruptcy if it makes sense for your situation. If it does, we will move quickly to help you get the debt relief that you and your family deserve. We have helped clients in more than 50,000 bankruptcies in Florida.

Medical Bills in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Medical bills are one of the most common types of debt that is discharged in bankruptcy. Both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 can discharge these debts. In Chapter 7, the debt will be eliminated completely. In Chapter 13, the debts will be paid off through a payment plan, but it may be a very small portion. At the end of that repayment plan, the remaining medical debt is discharged.

If you’re having financial issues and know bankruptcy might be your only option..


I just want to say “thank you” to you and Mr. Feinberg. I am so grateful to you both. I’m going to take some time and really pray about what to do next. I really need someone who is completely knowledgeable of this process and really wants to help and not just take advantage of someone who is vulnerable. I kinda feel like that is what has happened to me. So I thank God for you both.
