How does it work?

  • You make a donation. Undue Medical Debt uses data analytics to pinpoint the debt of those most in need: households that earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size) or whose debts are 5% or more of annual income.
  • Undue buys medical debt at a steep discount. We buy debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means your donation relieves about 100x its value in medical debt. Every dollar donated will be wipe out up to $100 in medical debt.
  • Together, we wipe out medical debt. Recipients have no tax consequences or penalties to consider. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt!

In the past forty years, medical costs have doubled, insurance copays and deductibles have spiked, and bankruptcy rates have quadrupled, creating an avalanche of destructive medical debt. Medical debt increases mental health distress, decreases utilization of medical services, and forces tough choices between paying off debt incrementally or paying for food, utilities, housing, and education.
