What to Know…

In the past four decades, medical expenses have doubled while insurance copays and deductibles have surged. Bankruptcy rates have quadrupled, leading to a surge in debilitating medical debt. Over 60% of bankruptcies in the United States are driven by medical debt.

In Georgia, the problem is compounded by the closure of hospitals, a longstanding issue predating the challenges of 2020. This has left many without viable options for medical care, particularly in rural and exurban areas, where health outcomes are among the nation’s worst. Our campaign aims to alleviate this burden by clearing as much existing medical debt as possible throughout the state, providing a crucial form of economic relief.

How to Help

Leveraging your generous contributions, Undue Medical Debt strategically acquires bundles of medical debt from hospitals and, occasionally, the secondary debt market, abolishing medical debt for mere pennies on the dollar. Recipients then experience a moment of relief upon opening Undue’s distinctive envelope, which brings them the incredible news: a third party has purchased and completely erased their debt, with absolutely no obligations remaining—they are free from the debt and spared any tax consequences.

Given our unique position to access and abolish significant volumes of medical debt within Georgia, the question arises: how can we stand by and do nothing? By eliminating this medical debt, we empower Georgians to reclaim their lives—be it through purchasing a new car, securing better housing, or pursuing further education. This act of debt abolishment not only boosts their financial capabilities but also fosters more stable living conditions and makes the fulfillment of basic needs more accessible.
