Posted by Ellen Brown | Jun 10, 2024

Many People Believe You Cannot File Bankruptcy on Your Medical Bills.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!

If you're burdened by overwhelming medical debts, you're not alone. Medical expenses can quickly accumulate, leaving individuals and families struggling to make ends meet. Fortunately, bankruptcy can offer a solution to alleviate the financial strain caused by medical bills. In this blog post, we'll explore whether you can include medical debts in bankruptcy and how our law firm can help you find relief.

Understanding Medical Debts

Medical debts can arise from various sources, including hospital bills, doctor's fees, prescription medications, and emergency treatments. These expenses can quickly add up, especially for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured.

Can Medical Debts Be Included in Bankruptcy?

Yes, medical debts are considered unsecured debts and can be included in your bankruptcy.  This is true, even if they have gone to a collection agency.


When you file bankruptcy your medical bills can be discharged, meaning you are no longer legally obligated to repay them. This can provide a fresh start and relief from overwhelming medical debts.
