Brigham City Bankruptcy Questions and Answers

Can medical bills be discharged in bankruptcy?

If you have medical debt you might be wondering if that is something that can be discharged in bankruptcy. The short answer is yes, absolutely. The only things that can’t are criminal, alimony, child support, and secured student loans. Medical does not fall under that category.

Of course, going back to the criminal restitution, if they are somebody else’s medical and it was caused by you –let’s say you were drunk driving and you hurt somebody– those medical bills can’t be discharged because those are actually criminal restitution. But if they’re your medical bills or your family’s medical bills and they didn’t result because of something criminal then yes absolutely, they can be discharged in a bankruptcy.
