How to get relief from medical debt collectors

Medical bills are unfortunately one of the largest potential expenses that you may face. Even if you have medical insurance or coverage of some sort, emergencies can still cost a large sum of money. This may lead to you facing a number of hardships, which you certainly don’t need in addition to your medical issues.

If you have faced a series of medical emergencies or one large emergency, you could find yourself falling into debt. Along with debt comes the possibility of creditor harassment. Even if you have continued medical emergencies, it is possible that creditors will harass you for the debt you are already in. They can send letters and call multiple times a day. This may leave you feeling threatened, uncomfortable or scared. If you are already in poor health, the last thing that you need is this additional stress that comes from large debt.

Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can get relief from your medical debt. One possible way is by filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Filing for bankruptcy will give you an automatic stay. This makes it illegal for collection agencies to contact you in any way or file a lawsuit against you. As long as you keep on top of your payments, then you will be able to eliminate the harassment. There are other options for additional debt stresses available as well.
