Individuals who have faced serious medical issues often find themselves overwhelmed by medical debt. This is especially true if you do not have health insurance. If your medical bills are piling up, it may be time to consider filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 case.
Your medical bills are treated as unsecured debt in a bankruptcy filing. If you file a Chapter 7, the majority of your unsecured debt is discharged or eliminated. Thus, if you had a lengthy hospital stay or required expensive treatments, this can mean you are no longer liable to pay thousands of dollars!

Your medical bills are treated the same as your other unsecured debt in a Chapter 13 case. Your Chapter 13 plan of reorganization will set forth what percentage of unsecured debt will be paid. Most unsecured creditors are paid very little, if anything, in a Chapter 13 filing. Thus, you will most likely pay pennies on the dollar owed which can also save you thousands of dollars!
