If you’ve ever been to the emergency room, you know the cost of a single visit can leave you feeling worse than before you got there. Medical debt is a huge problem -- one in five Americans have it, Californians owe more than $400 million. Simply put, it’s the biggest cause of bankruptcy in the United States.
That’s why NBC4 has decided to do something about it.
The next step is a donation. NBC4 and the NBC Owned TV Stations are making a $150,000 donation to RIP Medical Debt. They’re a charity that locates, buys and forgives medical debt across the US. Our donation will allow RIP Medial Debt to buy and forgive $15 Million in debt. It will help thousands across the country and more than two-thousand right here in Southern California.
So what can you do?The same thing we did. Make a donation to RIP Medical Debt and help pay it forward.
