Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Medical Bills
In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can wipe out any past-due or charged-off medical bills.
With the rising cost of health care and medical treatment, more and more individuals are strugg
ling to pay medical bills. In a chapter 7 bankruptcy, medical bills are treated as non-priority unsecured debt. This means that any medical bills you have will not receive any priority treatment by the Chapter 7 trustee if they are able to make any payments to your creditors. If no payments are made to your medical debt, or only a portion of the debt is paid by the Chapter 7 trustee, the remaining amount will be wiped out by the bankruptcy discharge. This means that medical creditors can no longer attempt to collect any of the discharged debt from you.
