Medical expenses creating hardships for many families

Even if you are financially responsible and do all you can to keep your debt level manageable, sometimes situations arise that are simply beyond your control. And anyone can fall victim to an injury, illness or serious medical condition. Such events often require hospitalization and treatment. And it is no secret that receiving medical attention can be an extremely expensive proposition.

Of course, some medical costs can be defrayed by insurance. And the Affordable Care Act was created in an effort to make sure that Americans have some measure of coverage. The Act is considered responsible for helping decrease the number of uninsured citizens by approximately 15 million. But even though there are fewer uninsured families and individuals in the United States, many people still face serious economic hardships caused by medical debts.

Even with insurance, people often must come up with the money for deductibles and co-payments when dealing with medical emergencies. These expenses can place a tremendous burden on a household's finances.

And the problem is not uncommon. Many people struggle to pay their medical expenses in spite of having insurance. In an attempt to pay their bills, they may deplete their savings or have to pick up another job or work longer hours.

Once you get on a debt treadmill, it can be very difficult to get off. And if you resort to using credit, the crushing interest rates can make it impossible to get back into the black.

If medical bills have exhausted your funds and you just want a fresh financial start, you may wish to discuss your situation with an experienced Texas bankruptcy attorney. You may be eligible to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Under Chapter 7, you could possibly have your medical and other debts discharged while having some of your most important assets protected.
