The Bankruptcy and Medical Bill Connection

Medical bills and bankruptcy are increasingly becoming part of the same conversation in the U.S. today. Sadly, thousands of families have become victim to high medical debt and until now have had very few options for overcoming such financial woes.

It’s understandable that so many Americans are being compelled to think about bankruptcy and medical bills as a potential answer to mountainous medical debt – unfortunately however, the downsides to bankruptcy are so severe and end up affecting individuals for years beyond making the decision to file.

Avoiding Medical Bankruptcy

We started GiveForward because we didn’t think people should be forced to choose between the hardship and embarrassment of a bankruptcy and paying for a medical crisis. Every day, we read the stories of our users and are touched by their stories. What’s most inspirational is that thousands of families and communities, time and again, come together to help the people they care about.

If you or a loved one is facing hard medical times, we encourage you to browse our site and learn more about our users and their incredible stories.
