Everyday 79,000,000 Americans choose between paying medical bills and basic needs like food and shelter.
66% of all bankruptcies are tied to medical debt issues. 25% of all US credit card debt is medical debt.
To avoid high costs, 1 in 2 people do not go to the doctor when they’re sick.
It’s easy to see how needy families could be stressed out and feeling hopeless already, and then the debt collector calls or the threatening letter arrives adding more stress.
REACH Ministries has been privileged to ease the burdens of many neighbors through eliminating their medical debt as part of our GIVING mission.
Each family helped receives a letter from our partner, RIP Medical, stating they no longer owe the debt for which they had been liable because REACH Ministries has raised the money to pay it. RIP also works with these families to restore their financial status and credit rating.
We have eliminated $6.4 Million of medical debt in the last 11 months with the goal of $10 Million in 2022.
