Medical Debt Relief


Many people do not realize medical debts can be discharged through bankruptcy.

In the current economy, more and more people are finding themselves without health insurance due to job loss or decreased benefits. Then, when struck with illness or injury, they find themselves unable to pay for medical bills. Even with health insurance, it is not uncommon for a claim to be denied or for the insurer to drop coverage altogether.

If you are struggling with unpaid medical bills and don’t know how you will pay for them, consider talking to a bankruptcy attorney. At Bird & Van Dyke in Stockton, California, we can provide you with the information you need to make sound financial decisions about your future. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.

Eliminating Medical Debts Through Bankruptcy

Anyone who has stepped foot into a clinic or hospital knows how costly any medical procedure can be. When faced with prolonged illness or an unexpected surgery, medical costs can skyrocket.

Both Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be used to discharge hospital bills. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, known as liquidation bankruptcy, immediately discharges debt. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which reorganizes debt, will discharge debt over time.
