Medical bills, as they are not secured by any type of collateral, are considered unsecured debt. This type of debt is dischargeable in bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy may allow you to have medical bills completely dismissed and give you the fresh start you need. In a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, medical bills (as well as other secured and unsecured debts) will be restructured according to a plan that allows you to make payments and still find financial relief.
