The Problem

In the past forty years, medical costs have doubled, insurance copays and deductibles have spiked, and bankruptcy rates have quadrupled, creating an avalanche of medical debt. Over 60% of bankruptcies in America have medical debt as a root cause.

The problem is especially dire in Florida. Studies found that Florida has some of the highest healthcare costs in the country and one of the highest uninsured rates.

From carefree Okaloosa Island to sunny Miami Beach, Florida feels like paradise. And when you’re living in an oasis, it can be easy to forget that many people around you are struggling. While others are saving for retirement in the Keys or splurging on a night in South Beach, many owing medical debt are forced to split their paychecks with debt collectors, working nights and weekends to pay back a debt they incurred through no fault of their own. Those saddled with substantial medical debt, particularly, can be denied loans, apartments, or even jobs, making it difficult to advance in life or escape their debt.

How You Can Help

Undue Medical Debt uses your donations to purchase bundled medical debt portfolios from hospitals and occasionally on the secondary debt market and then abolishes that debt at pennies on the dollar. 

On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in medical debt, and every donation through this page will be spent directly on abolishing medical debt in Florida.

When debt relief recipients open the envelope from Undue, they are told that their debt has been bought by a third party and erased with no strings attached. They owe nothing on the debt and face no tax penalty. A recent beneficiary wrote to us, saying:

“I read my letter over a few times to make sure it was the real thing. Receiving this debt relief renewed my faith that I can get back on track. It jump-started it – that we can do this – I can get back in the game! It’s unheard of what Undue does, and it’s a game changer in the medical world. It’s a game changer for me.”

Every $1 you contribute is a $100 investment in Floridian towns and cities. Money will stay in the community instead of being taken by out-of-state debt collectors. On average, $15.40 can abolish the medical debt of an entire family in Florida, allowing them to use the money for what matters to them most.
