For some of us, step 1 might not be that feasible. Sure maybe there can be a few dollars each month in the bill paying money, but saving too? Youre crazy! Yeah, I get it. It wont be for everyone (at least not right awaystay tuned because you will be able to do it!)
When the medical bills start rolling in, I want you to call the office that the payments go to and communicate with them about any financial hardships and what you can do for a payment plan, and, if you are in such a hard place, maybe even a reduction in your bill. (It can happen it just depends on circumstances and how much work you want to do with their paperwork to see if you qualify.)
Communicating with the hospital or doctor office is paramount for this to work. If you dont reach out, failure waits for you soon after! So call them!!
Being on a plan of some kind will allow you to throw all the medical bills into one pile, and pay on them with a structured plan. This isnt the fastest and obviously not the nicest way to go about eliminating medical debt, but it will get you there eventually.
The Benefit To You
Here is the part where I said you will be able to save. Once the medical debt is wiped clean, dont stop paying for it! I know that sounds strange. Take that money, and start saving it in an account or wherever suits you best. You will have adapted your life to this habit enough to be used to paying it, so just keep doing it. It will be a healthy practice, and now you can also save for the Emergency you didnt plan for.
I know this blog was a long one but I feel it is important to share it because it can help so many with something so crippling in this country. Medical debt is outrageous in this day and age, and most people suffer every month because of it. Its not fun, its not pretty and we dont like paying for it but the reality is there, and hopefully what I have shared with you today will help guide you into a more productive place to deal with it.
