Struggling with Medical Debt? You’re Not Alone.

When someone is going through a medical crisis, the last thing that person needs is additional stress. However, for millions of Americans, insurmountable medical debt is a reality that accompanies their illness or medical condition.  The Consumer Financial Protections Bureau reports 72 million Americans struggle to pay off medical debt, as of 2018. In fact, it is one of the leading causes of bankruptcy in the U.S.

According to a recent study by Kaiser Family Foundation and the Los Angeles Times, more than 50 percent of consumers have someone in their household who suffers from some type of chronic medical condition. Dealing with continual medical appointments, medication and monitoring of the condition can take its toll, especially on a family’s finances.

Even more staggering are the statistics reported by the American Cancer Society (ACS). According to their figures, more than 137 million Americans are struggling to pay their medical bills. Falling behind due to a medical condition can happen so quickly and easily. With the cost of medical care in our country, many of these patients end up losing everything they have because of their illness. The ACS data shows that 42 percent of cancer patients end up losing their entire life savings within just two years of treatment.

The ACS study looked at what they classify as high out-of-pocket (OOP) costs for medical care, not just care for the treatment of cancer, by focusing on patients between the ages of 18 and 64. Their study looked at several criteria, including lifestyle modification because of medical costs, temporary loss of employment because of medical treatment,  the need to refinance or mortgage the home due to medical bills, permanent loss of employment from medical treatment, and the need to sell the patient’s home just to pay medical bills. Other, more severe measures, included stopping necessary treatment because of the cost, and even considering suicide.

The ACS researchers looked at three different “domains” or areas of hardship, including financial hardship, psychological hardship, and coping behaviors. One-third of those surveyed in the category over the age of 65 reported hardship in at least one of the three areas surveyed of hardship. However, of those who were in the “employed” category, meaning between the ages of 18 and 64, over 50 percent of them reported hardship in at least one of the three categories. Women tended to be the group hit the hardest in these three domains.

An even more disturbing statistic showed that while more than half of those surveyed said they were struggling in one of the three hardship areas, one-fourth of those surveyed reported struggling in two of those domains. Unfortunately, as the cost of healthcare continue to rise, as do the prevalence of chronic medical conditions, this problem is only anticipated to get worse, which is why medical care and quality health insurance continue to be an issue on the forefront of politics.

How is Medical Debt Handled in Bankruptcy?

In bankruptcy, medical debt is treated the same as credit card debt. Medical bills are listed as general unsecured debt and can be easily wiped out in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing.  Making the decision to file for bankruptcy is never an easy one.  It can be difficult to get past some of the myths associated with filing for bankruptcy. Sometimes by waiting, an individual facing a lot of debt can find himself or herself in an even worse situation. Filing for bankruptcy can help protect valuable assets, including your home, car, IRA and social security.  It will put an end to wage garnishment and any lawsuit being filed to collect on the debt, thanks to the protections of the automatic stay.

Those who have experienced illness or injury and found themselves overwhelmed with medical debt should contact an experienced Miami bankruptcy attorney. In bankruptcy, medical bills are considered general unsecured debts just like credit cards. This means that medical bills do not receive priority treatment and can easily be discharged in bankruptcy. Bankruptcy laws were created to help people resolve overwhelming debt and gain a fresh financial start.

Why You Should Never Use Your 401(k) to Pay Down Debt

When someone is facing a large amount of debt, it can be tempting to want to use all available resources to pay off that debt. Even if it means taking money out of retirement accounts. However, this could end up costing more than anticipated, delay retirement- and oftentimes the inevitable.

If bankruptcy is in your foreseeable future, the last thing you want to do is use assets that would otherwise be protected in bankruptcy to pay off debts that could be discharged in the bankruptcy case. Unsecured debt, such as credit card debt, personal loans and medical bills, end up being discharged at the end of a bankruptcy case, so it would not be worthwhile to use retirement savings to pay off these debts only to file for bankruptcy later.

Funds in your 401(k) are protected by federal bankruptcy law. While many assets can be used to pay off debts, retirement account funds are protected and cannot be touched under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). This law sets minimum protection standards for anyone who voluntarily contributes to a retirement account in the private sector. Florida also allows for exemptions for IRA accounts in bankruptcy.

The problem is many individuals try to avoid bankruptcy at all costs, and they see using assets, such as retirement savings, as an easy way to pay off debt.  But this does not come without consequences. Taking money out of retirement accounts too early can have some negative tax implications. If you take money from a retirement account and are under the age of 59 ½, you can incur some tax penalties as a result, including a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty. Money should never be taken prematurely from your retirement accounts without first consulting a financial advisor and accountant.

If you are struggling to pay off debt, including credit cards, medical bills or personal loans, you should consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss the real possibility that bankruptcy may be the best option for you. It is recommended that you consult these professionals before taking the money out of retirement accounts. We have filed bankruptcy petitions for clients with more in their retirement accounts than on their credit card statement. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to hold onto all of your retirement savings and keep every penny of your 401(k).

However, this is only the case if the money remains in your 401(k) retirement account.  Removing funds from the 401(k) or any retirement account before filing for bankruptcy turns the funds from a protected asset to an unprotected asset.  It is important to speak with an attorney, especially if you have recently lost your job and have considered pulling from your retirement savings to help pay for day-to-day living expenses.

Americans Will End Up Paying $122 Billion in Credit Card Interest in 2019

It is a staggering headline, but just last year Americans paid banks $113 billion in credit card interest, according to a recent study from MagnifyMoney. That is up 12% from interest paid in 2017, and up 50% from 5 years ago. And the amount of interest is only set to increase in 2019.  Credit card debt plagues consumers from all walks of life. The larger the debt, the more likely that cardholder is accruing interest.

What is causing this increase in interest? Financial analysts believe that now since a decade has passed since the big financial crisis in 2008, consumers are feeling more confident in their abilities to borrow more. As a result, the total amount of credit card debt has reached a record high, since before the recession. However, borrowers are also paying more when it comes to interest on the amounts they borrow, as banks have passed recent Federal Reserve rate hikes onto their customers.

The average APR on credit cards has gone up approximately four percentage points over the past five years. The average APR on a credit card is 16.86 percent, according to the Federal Reserve.

The problem with credit card interest is it can make paying down your debt very difficult. In fact, according to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, 40 percent of all active credit card users carry a balance from month to month on their cards.

While credit card interest can make paying down the overall balance very difficult, certain methods can help in conquering your debt.  If a consumer is struggling to pay multiple credit cards, the snowball method can help in paying one card down at a time. Using this method, the consumer tackles the card with highest balance or highest interest rate. The consumer continues to pay the minimum amount owed every month on the other cards while putting all other money on the first card. Once that first card is paid in full, the consumer then takes the second card with the second highest rate or second highest balance. This process continues until all cards are paid off in full. While this method can take some discipline, it is a method with proven success.

When to File for Bankruptcy

Coming to the decision to file for bankruptcy is not an easy choice to make. Many individuals consider bankruptcy to be an admission of failure, but it can oftentimes be the only way for them to truly obtain a fresh financial start. Certain decisions and factors must be considered when coming to the decision to file for bankruptcy.

One consideration that often holds people back from making the decision to file is the effect the filing will have on their credit. The effects of bankruptcy on a person’s credit score depends on the score the filer had before filing for bankruptcy. If you have a higher credit score, the effect the bankruptcy will have will be more noticeable. However, if you have a lower credit score to begin with, the change may not be as much after filing for bankruptcy.

It helps to sort through the myths and facts before making that final decision, and if you do choose to file for bankruptcy, this does not mean all hope is loss. There are proven ways to rebuild your credit score after bankruptcy, and our clients are proof!

My credit score said on all three reports 775, I couldn’t believe that I had such a great score before 10 years. Tim for me was the best move I have made for my situation. I have no regrets, I am glad the past is the past. – Bill T.

Hi Tim- I just wanted to send a quick note and thank you and your team for handling my bankruptcy case.  It is only a month or two after discharge, and my credit scores are already in the upper 600’s. – C.S.

Traditionally, two of the biggest reasons people file for bankruptcy are the result of a serious medical crisis or a divorce. Both can cause a person’s financial situation to change overnight. Even if someone has medical insurance, a major medical crisis can still put them in a tough financial spot, especially if that person must pay a high deductible for his or her medical costs. The same goes for a divorce and losing the financial support of another person in a relationship.

Several factors need to be considered when deciding which form of bankruptcy to choose. Chapter 7 bankruptcy takes approximately three to six months to have the debt discharged, which includes most of the filer’s unsecured debt, including medical bills, credit card debt and personal loans. Other types of debt are excluded for the most part, including student loan debt, child support, spousal support and tax obligations. The bankruptcy trustee may choose to sell of non-exempt property to pay off the debt, although most property falls under an exemption- which means you can keep it. Property that is secured and is associated with a piece of property, like a home, can be kept so long as the debtor is able to keep up on payments and maintain the property. Therefore, if most of your debt involves credit card debt or medical debt, Chapter 7 may be the best option for you to eliminate this burden.

If you are behind on your mortgage payments but want to keep your home, many times, the Chapter 13 filing is a more logical choice. In a Chapter 13 case, you can lump past due mortgage payments into the repayment plan and pay them over time while keeping current on payments.

The bankruptcy means test determines whether or not you are eligible to file for debt forgiveness through Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The test uses factors such as: income, expenses and family size to determine who can afford to repay their debts through reorganization and who cannot.

It is always recommended that you speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney before making any decision to file or not file. If you are expecting a large lump sum payment, such as an inheritance or tax refund, the attorney may advise you to wait on filing and utilize that money on needed expenses first before filing to avoid losing it in a bankruptcy. Be honest with your attorney during this meeting and fully disclose all your financial circumstances so that the best decision can be made.

If you have questions on this topic or are in financial crisis and considering filing for bankruptcy, contact an experienced Miami bankruptcy attorney who can advise you of all of your options.

Generation X Carries Most Debt Out of All Generations

Debt presents a problem for many Americans today, but one generation clearly stands out among the rest in terms of holding the most consumer debt. In fact, according to a recent study published by LightStream Survey conducted by the Harris Poll, nearly 80 percent of all members in the Generation X, ranging from ages 36 to 51, have some level of debt. The report showed that eight in ten members in this age category carry debt.

Coming in just below this were members of the Millennial generation, consumers between the ages of 20 and 35. Approximately 75 percent of all members in this age group carried debt. The next group was the Baby Boomer generation, which includes individuals between the ages of 52 and 70, with 69 percent of them carrying some type of debt.

While all three of these generations carry debt, it is the mindset of those in the Gen X category that presents the most cause for concern. Those surveyed in Gen X reported that they felt it was impossible to pay off a significant debt once it was incurred. Additionally, 25 percent of those in this demographic reported that they were not confident in how they were handling their finances. However, in the survey data, these individuals did state that they would be willing to give up hobbies or extracurricular activities to get rid of their debt payments, which does show some promise.

On average, individuals in Generation X carry $30,334 in “non-mortgage debt.” In comparison, Baby Boomers hold $27,513 and Millennials hold $22,784 in non-mortgage debt.

Getting out of debt can also be problematic for individuals in this generation, as well. Those who are younger may be able to use their savings or cash in their investments to reduce their debt, but it may be too difficult for Gen X members to dip into their retirement savings to pay off debt.

If you are struggling with insurmountable debt, dipping into retirement savings is never advisable.  These are protected in bankruptcy along with the following bankruptcy exemptions in Florida. Many individuals are already struggling to pay for obligations, including helping aging parents as well as adult children. While they are not quite at the age of retirement, they are approaching that point, making it too close for comfort to use retirement savings.

Continuing to struggle with debt is a slower, less effective way to pay it off.  Many different debt relief options exist, including debt consolidation, debt settlement or negotiation and bankruptcy – but it is important that as a consumer you research your options carefully.

How Filing for Bankruptcy Can Reinstate Your Driver’s License

Filing for bankruptcy can provide different forms of relief for individuals facing financial crisis. Bankruptcy can help lift the burden that comes with facing collection calls, wage garnishment and related lawsuits, and provide you with a fresh financial start. However, many people are surprised to learn that you have options to have your driver’s license reinstated through bankruptcy.

The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can suspend your driver’s license for a number of different reasons, and one of those reasons for suspension can include debt, although many individuals are not aware of this as a possible consequence.  If your license was suspended due to outstanding debt, it is possible that bankruptcy can help eliminate this debt, allowing your license to be reinstated.

The most common reason for why an individual’s license would be suspended due to debt is if the person was involved in a car accident and either did not have insurance or was under-insured. If he or she was found to be at-fault for the accident and did not have the money to pay for the other person’s injuries or property damages, the at-fault driver could end up losing his or her license, especially if a judgement is entered against them.

The consequences of losing your license can be far reaching. Not having the ability to drive can put you in an even more difficult financial situation, especially if you depend on driving to get to and from work or take your children to school or daycare. If you do not have adequate public transportation available to get you to your job and are not able to rely on the assistance of others, not having a license can result in you losing your job, thus making your financial situation even worse. It can be nearly impossible to make the money to repay the debt, digging that person further into a debt hole.

If your driver’s license has been revoked due to your debt, you can either pay the debt in full, or, if you do not have the funds available, consider filing for bankruptcy. Debts that are associated with car accidents are often considered dischargeable debts and are thus discharged when the bankruptcy case is successfully closed.

As long as you include the car accident and insurance company in your list of debts, you can have your driver’s license reinstated through bankruptcy. However, it is required that your license be eligible for reinstatement. For example, if you were not carrying auto insurance before the accident you will have to show proof of insurance before your license is reinstated.

See what one of our clients has to say about having their license reinstated through bankruptcy and their debt burden lifted…

When Filing for Bankruptcy is the Best Option for Medical Debt

It only takes one medical crisis to set you back thousands of dollars.  In fact, medical debt is the number one reason people file for bankruptcy.  Bankruptcy is a part of the U.S. Constitution built to help people in financial crisis. So how do you know when it’s the right time to file bankruptcy?

The following factors are indicators that you should consider filing for bankruptcy, or at least sit down with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to discuss your options in more detail.

  • If your debt amount is more than 40 percent of your income. The higher the debt-to-income ratio a person has, the less likely it is he or she will earn enough money to ever pay back the debt;
  • If you are using debt, such as credit cards or unsecured personal loans, to pay for other debts;
  • If your debts include items that can be liquidated in bankruptcy, such as medical debt, credit cards or personal loans;
  • You are using payday loans to help cover necessities before your next paycheck. This is oftentimes a sign your expenses are exceeding your income;
  • If you are forgoing necessities such as healthcare, prescriptions, or food;
  • If the collection calls have reached a breaking point;
  • If you have been threatened with a lawsuit, are being sued by a creditor or your wages are being garnished.

Student Loans, Timothy Kingcade Posts

40% of Borrowers Could Default on their Student Loans

If you are struggling with student loan debt, you are not alone. Today, 70 percent of college students graduate with a significant amount of debt. More than 44 million Americans collectively hold nearly $1.5 trillion in student debt. That means that roughly one in four American adults are paying off student loans.

As the amount of debt has increased, so have the amount of defaults. In fact, it is estimated that around 40 percent of student loan borrowers will default on their student loan obligations by the year 2023. Student loans now make up the second largest consumer debt next to mortgage debt.

It is estimated that college graduates of the Class of 2017 walked away with nearly $40,000 in student loan debt. This figure is $3,000 more than the previous class in 2016.

Thirty-two percent of borrowers who held a balance of $5,000 or less in student loan debt defaulted at least once within four years as compared to 15 percent of borrowers defaulting who owed $35,000 in student loan debt.

The thought of paying back student loan debt can be daunting. How can you stay on top of your student loan debt to avoid falling into default? One tip is to utilize student loan consolidation, which helps you manage your student loan debt into one Direct Consolidation Loan. Another recommendation if your interest rates on your student loans are particularly high is to look into refinancing to adjust the rate to a lower amount.

When it comes to bankruptcy and student loan debt, there are some misconceptions. One being, that student loans are never dischargeable in bankruptcy. In fact, there are ways to file for bankruptcy with student loan debt.

Click here to read more on this story.

For borrowers who are struggling with student loan debt, relief options are available.  Many student loan borrowers are unaware that they have rights and repayment options available to them, such as postponement of loan payments, reduction of payments or even a complete discharge of the debt. It is important you contact an experienced Miami bankruptcy attorney who can advise you of all your options.
