Team of Family Medicine Doctors to Abolish $1.7M of Indiana Medical Debt!
Two thirds of all personal bankruptcies in America are tied to a medical event, either
because of high costs of care or because it caused the person to be out of work.
Families right in our own communities turn to bankruptcy because of medical issues
and bills, ruining credit scores and crippling their families’ future hopes. Too often,
medical events become financial catastrophes.
At Schumacher Family Medicine and Cardinal Family Medicine, we are passionate
about finding innovative solutions that reduce health care costs while improving access
We are also passionate about finding community-based ways to help our neighbors.
That is why we are teaming up with RIP Medical Debt to abolish medical debt for our
friends and neighbors here in Marshall, Starke, Fulton and Kosciusko counties, along
with Huntington, Wells, Whitley and Wabash counties. These counties combined
represent 1.7 million dollars of serious medical debt.
For every $1 raised, $100 of medical debt is eliminated. Our goal, along with RIP
Medical Debt, is to raise $17,000 to purchase 1.7M of medical debt and forgive it. Can you imagine receiving that letter that says your medical debt is forgiven? It is life-
changing! Please join our team and consider giving a gift of any amount. Together we can wipe out medical debt for these 8 counties!
Who is RIP 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.
