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.
It's as easy as doing your taxes! This tax season, when you visit any H&R Block location as a new client to complete your tax return, present the flyer below and H&R Block will donate $20 to RIP Medical Debt! For every new client that brings the flyer into the office to complete their return, H&R Block will donate $20 to RIP Medical Debt, abolishing $200 of national medical debt.
RIP Medical Debt uses donations to purchase bundled medical debt portfolios that have gone through collection agencies for months or years. Using third-party credit data providers, it targets debt incurred by people facing financial hardship, and then forgives it. On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in medical debt.
