Unlock hidden dollars for patients<br />
Struggling to pay

100 million patients live with medical debt

Jeremy is among them

Over the years, when the 31-year-old musician landed in the emergency room without insurance, bills racked up. The first time, he broke his foot after slipping on ice. Another time, he had chest pains caused by a chronic upper respiratory condition.

By 2022, Jeremy owed more than $4,000 and was in the dark about the help he could get. When he was unable to pay, debt collectors hounded him for money and even showed up at his doorstep. The experience took a toll on his mental health and kept him away from needed care.
