In medical debt relief
At Dollar For, our biggest effort is expressed in our Debt Forgiveness program, in which we enforce the hospital’s Charity Care policies. In order for hospitals to keep their nonprofit status, they have to have programs in place that aid families without incomes large enough to cover their medical expenses, called Charity Care. Dollar For has created a tool for families to easily find out if they are eligible for the Charity Care program. This tool, housed here (hyperlink the “here” maybe to the Debt Forgiveness page?) within our website, allows anyone to enter a few simple pieces of information and find out immediately if they qualify. We then work through a more extensive application with the family and, with the help of a team of attorneys that work with Dollar For, reach out to the hospitals, advocating for the family and reinforcing that the hospital pays off a debt it is legally responsible for.
We are simply streamlining a process that is already in place – it’s just difficult and confusing to navigate. We hope to start the conversation about medical debt forgiveness for families in need and create such an awareness and knowledge of the situation, that one day families will be able to reclaim their financial freedom on their own.
