The Medical Bankruptcy Myth Mar 11, 2019 - Although medical debt is a common cause of bankruptcy, there is no such thing as a Medical Bankruptcy.

Regardless of whether you file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, all creditors must be listed and will receive notice of the bankruptcy filing. Medical bills will be discharged by the bankruptcy, along with credit card debt, utility bills, personal loans, and other unsecured debts.
