End Medical Debt - Story Collection
Between 2015 and 2020 over 52,000 New Yorkers were sued by hospitals over medical debt. Many New Yorkers burdened by medical debt have found themselves put into collection --particularly people of color in certain regions of our state. The End Medical Debt Coalition is fighting to put an end to practices that prevent New Yorkers from accessing the care they need without the fear of being placed in financial jeopardy.
Your voice matters! As we work to educate the public and our government officials, it's important that they hear how hospital and medical debt has affected you. We are asking, if you feel comfortable, to answer the following short survey so that your story may be included in our public education campaign and as part of our public hearings on the issue.
