Over the past two years, COVID-19 has exacerbated an already heavy burden that so many in our community are facing, medical debt.  Because of the pandemic, there’s no question that even more people in our community will be facing medical bills they simply cannot pay.  Without help, some people will never recover from this debt.

Almost two-thirds of all bankruptcies in the U.S. have medical debt as the root cause, and the majority of those people had health insurance at the time.  The Texas Panhandle is not immune to this problem.  Hundreds and hundreds of our friends and neighbors right here at home are burdened by medical debt from health events they had no control over.  With your help, we can eliminate much of this debt here in Potter and Randall Counties, and bless these people in a way that will really make a difference in their lives.

How You Can Help

RIP Medical Debt uses donations to purchase bundled medical-debt portfolios on the secondary debt market. RIP targets debt incurred by people facing financial hardship, and then forgives it. On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in medical debt, and every donation through this page will be spent directly on abolishing debt right here in Potter & Randall Counties.

How RIP Works

Over a hundred million Americans, one in three, struggles with the weight of medical debt.

Here’s how we lift them up.


You make a donation

With every donation, RIP uses its precise data analytics to pinpoint the medical debt of those most in need of relief: households whose incomes are less than four times the federal poverty level guideline or with medical debt representing at least 5% of gross income.

RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount

Your donations allow us to buy debt in bundled portfolios, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. On average, whatever you donate has 100x the impact.

Together we wipe out medical debt

People across the country receive a letter that their debt is gone. No taxes. No penalties. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.

Who We Help


Frequent Questions

Yes. We are a 501(c)(3) charity and your donation is 100% tax deductible.


Relevant Documents:

When we purchase a portfolio of medical debt, we abolish debt for individuals who:

  • Earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size).
  • Debts are 5 percent or more of annual income.

We only buy debt that has been pre-qualified by our partners to meet at least one of these criteria. 

We never collect on debt we purchase, only relieve it.

No. With your help, we abolish medical debt permanently. Recipients have no adverse tax consequences, obligations, or strings attached.

For those whose medical debts are relieved, the relief is a gift from a detached and disinterested third party (RIP) as an act of generosity, so relief of the debt does not count as income to the debtor. We will not file a Form 1099-C with the IRS.

Due to HIPAA laws, RIP Medical Debt cannot disclose the names, contact information or any other specific details of the debt relief beneficiaries.

RIP Medical Debt cannot relieve debt by individual request.

While we would love to help everyone who needs assistance, RIP Medical Debt cannot abolish medical debt for specific individuals. We approach the problem of medical debt by acquiring large portfolios of debt to help thousands of people at once.

Because medical debt affects so many people who may not have debt accounts in the portfolios we purchase, we have compiled a list of resources that may be able to help in ways RIP Medical Debt cannot.
