About Medical Bankruptcy


For some people, getting sick means going bankrupt. Here’s the true story of a couple who experienced just that.

The husband, a man without much education, worked for minimum wage at a foundry sweeping floors. The wife worked before coming down with cancer. They could not afford the medical bills and were not on any social or welfare program, neither did they have insurance. As a result, the hospital started garnishing 25% of the husband’s salary.

Eventually, they could not sustain their expenses and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy that allowed for complete liquidation of whatever little assets they had to pay for their debts and cancellation of the rest.
