One of the scariest debts to have is medical debt. This is due to the fact that there are more than just financial problems in the mix. Your health or that of a loved one is also at stake. Mounting medical bills only add to the stress of receiving and paying for health care. Not to mention that medical debt can be astronomical. Even a simple procedure can cost thousands of dollars.
Most medical debt is unsecured debt, meaning the debt is not secured against property (such as a mortgage). However, like credit card debt, which is also unsecured debt, medical debt can become secured debt. When you do not pay, the physician or hospital can come after you. Furthermore, if you have accrued debt it is up to the physician to determine if he or she will continue to see you. This is a frightening possibility. Let me help you with your medical debt problems and guide you toward possible solutions.
