Our Mission: Make Every Block Better

Please join the H&R Block team to make every Block better by abolishing medical debt in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky & Tennessee! There is over $600M that RIP Medical Debt has access to. Every dollar raised will abolish $100 of medical debt, which means that $15,000 raised will abolish $1.5 million of medical debt.

Funds raised will help eliminate medical debt for individuals who:

  • Earn below 200% of the federal poverty level;
  • Are experiencing financial hardship - spending more than 5% of their annual income on medical expenses or medical debt;
  • Are insolvent - their medical debts are greater than their assets. 

Let's rally together to erase $1.5 million of debilitating medical debt. $1.5 million of medical debt abolished is $1.5 million in renewed credit access. It’s young families able to save for a house, or their children’s college tuition. It’s $1.5 million back into the economy allowing people to live their best lives instead of worrying about the heavy burden of medical debt encountered through no fault of their own.

Let’s make a difference by making every Block better.
