Campaign Created ByKingfisher United Methodist Church

We have the opportunity to reach out to our neighbors in Western Oklahoma to help abolish medical debt through our “Do All The Good You Can” campaign.  Kingfisher First United Methodist Church is partnering with RIP Medical Debt, a company that is able to purchase debt from the secondary debt market and healthcare providers, to get rid of 4.9 million dollars’ worth of debt for $27,000!

RIP Medical Debt purchases a portfolio of medical debt and then uses the money we raise to abolish the debt for individuals who meet at least one of the following two criteria.  1) Earn at or less than 4x the federal poverty level.  2) Have medical debts that are 5% or more of their annual income.  If you want more information on RIP Medical Debt, feel free to check them out for yourself at https://ripmedicaldebt.org

If we are able to tackle this debt, we can even expand our goal to knock out all of the medical debt that RIP has been able to currently purchase for the entire state of Oklahoma.  That would be over 8.4 million dollars’ worth of debt and would cost approximately $50,000 to abolish.  Our goal is to see how much we can raise in 4 months.  Let’s see how much good we can do for others!

In the words of John Wesley:  Do all the good you can.  By all the means you can.  In all the ways you can.  In all the places you can.  At all the times you can.  To all the people you can.  As long as ever you can.

How RIP Works

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

  • You make a donation

    We use data analytics to pinpoint the debt of those most in need: households that earn less than 4x the federal poverty level (varies by state, family size) or whose debts are 5% or more of annual income.

  • RIP buys medical debt at a steep discount

    We buy debt in bundles, millions of dollars at a time at a fraction of the original cost. This means your donation relieves about 100x its value in medical debt.

  • Together we wipe out medical debt

    People across the country receive letters that their debt has been erased. They have no tax consequences or penalties to consider. Just like that, they’re free of medical debt.


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.
