By the end of 2019, the amazing startup charity RIP Medical Debt, founded in 2014 and funded solely by donations, will have purchased and forgiven $1 Billion worth of unpaid and unpayable medical bills. For context, RIP estimates that the total amount of reported and unreported unpaid medical debt in America over the past ten years is at least $1 Trillion.
RIP’s three founders (two former bill collectors and a medical administrator) have now gone public with what they know, clearly and realistically examining the causes and major proposed cures for our broken U.S. healthcare system. Their book, End Medical Debt, equips the reader with the education and tools needed to end medical debt once and for all — for good.
“America spends more on medical care than any other country, and the resulting medical debt is our nation’s top reason for bankruptcy and financial ruin. I’ve seen the impact. End Medical Debt offers clear answers on what people can do for themselves and society to end this scourge.”
