When healthcare results in crushing medical debt, you need help

There are some things that money cannot buy, such as happiness and family relationships. Most other things in life come with a cost, including healthcare. Many Washington families struggle with medical debt in addition to other ongoing expenses.

Over the past few years, healthcare costs have taken a bigger bite out of almost every family's budget. Having insurance is no shield against rising medical debt. In fact, many insurance policies cover even fewer procedures than in the past. This means you may now be personally responsible for more of your family's healthcare needs than before.

Moreover, a serious illness or accident can spawn financial disaster. If your family has had the misfortune of experiencing one of these devastating circumstances, then you may be familiar with the monetary losses that frequently accompany a medical crisis. If you are now struggling to cope with mounting debt -- whether from medical costs or other obligations -- you may be feeling as if you will never regain your financial footing again.

Nevertheless, options exist for seeking relief from medical debt and other crushing financial obligations. An attorney experienced with bankruptcy proceedings can provide information on either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 relief while reviewing your specific needs. Chapter 7 allows for the discharge of most unsecured debt while Chapter 13 offers the opportunity for debt reorganization under a plan approved by the Bankruptcy Court. Filing for bankruptcy protection can provide Washington families with the opportunity to start fresh and find financial peace.
