Medical debt is a serious financial burden on adults and families in New Jersey, resulting in constant threatening calls from debt collectors and sometimes even lawsuits when left unpaid. More than 16% of adults in New Jersey had unpaid medical bills, but since the pandemic hit this debt has become an even bigger issue. Hundreds of thousands of people have had to undergo emergency treatments for the coronavirus, resulting in expensive hospital bills and on top of that, nearly 1.5 million NJ residents have lost their jobs since the pandemic started. Families have had to choose between paying their medical debt or paying for dinner, and I would like to use this campaign to help them not need to make that decision.
Saloni Singh, Event Organizer
I am a biomedical science student at High Tech High School as well as an aspiring healthcare professional, so I want to make sure the people in my community can get necessary treatment without needing to worry about the consequences of the debt that results from it. RIP Medical Debt is a wonderful charity that is able to purchase debt for pennies on the dollar, so even a small donation can have a big impact on those in need. Your contribution will first go towards helping those living in Hudson and Bergen Counties before being distributed to other areas in New Jersey.
