Medical Bills & Bankruptcy

Overwhelmed by Medical Debt?

With more than two decades in practice, Peter Rasla & Associates, P.L.C. has seen that many people buried in debt have gotten there from unplanned for and unexpected medical bills from severe illness or tragic accidents. Insurance does not always cover the total costs if one is fortunate enough to have it. Worker's compensation can help with work-related injuries but even there, much of the cost is not always covered. Medical expenses and hospital costs in today's world can be exorbitant. If you are wondering how you will ever repay your medical bills, an Irvine bankruptcy attorney is here to help you.

Does Bankruptcy Clear Medical Debt?

Debt from medical bills is considered unsecured debt. This means medical bills can be discharged through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

  • With a Chapter 7 filing: Medical debt is eliminated along with any other general unsecured debts, with no limit to the amount discharged. This also applies to medical bills paid via credit card, as all credit card debt is also considered unsecured debts.
  • With a Chapter 13 filing: Your medical debt is added to your repayment plan along with all other unsecured debts.
