How It Works
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 income is less than two times the federal poverty level guideline or are insolvent.
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. 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.
