Medical bills in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Through Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you may be able to eliminate or significantly reduce your medical debt. Many people fear that discharging their medical debt will affect their future medical care. Hospitals and other health care providers cannot refuse service to anyone just because they have filed bankruptcy and had medical debts discharged in the past, no matter how recent. Medical providers have an obligation to make sure a patient is being served by another provider before they can refuse essential treatment.
